Split into three ‘Episodes’, the festival programme includes everything from experimental filmmaking and underground noise musicians to political theatre, visual art commissions and leading philosophers.
Episode 1: A Film is a Statement (19 – 22 Jan at CCA)
The first weekend of the festival looks to explore experimental filmmaking and features radical moving image artists, political filmmakers and activists.
One of Europe’s leading documentary filmmakers and film critics, Hartmut Bitomsky, gets Arika12 underway with a free workshop: An Introductory Salon with Hartmut Bitomsky (19 Jan 19.30 – 22.00), that invites audience members to bring along their own film clips to be examined by Bitomsky and the rest of the group.
Other Episode 1 highlights include: a screening of the 1982 film Too Soon, Too Late by Struab-Huillet (22 Jan 16.30 – 19.15), which documents the traces left on the cultural landscape after past revolutions in France and Egypt; and leading feminist philosopher and activist Nina Power will discuss how political and philosophical positions can be read in film, and present a screening of November by Hito Steyerl (21 Jan 16.00 – 17.30).

Episode 2: A Special Form of Darkness (24 – 26 Feb at Tramway)
How do we make sense of artists, cultural critics, philosophers and scientists who doubt identity, existence and experience?
Episode 2 seeks to address this question and will feature music, performance art and philosophy over three days at Glasgow's Tramway.
Episode 3: Copying Without Copying (23 – 25 Mar at Tramway)
Exploring the concepts of copying, repetition and reanimation, the final weekend of the festival will feature performed installations, film-lectures, learning-plays and readings.
Full programme information together with details of how to buy tickets for the festival, can be found on the Arika12 website.
