Closing thoughts

The 1st Alternative Film/Video Research Forum was held in 2012 under the auspices of the festival Alternative Film/Video and featured such notable participants as Dirk de Bruyn, Ivan Ladislav Galeta, and others. In 2014 the forum anthology On Fragmentation, edited by Greg de Cuir Jr, was published. In 2016 the 5th Research Forum will investigate the various intersections between documentary and alternative cinematic forms. This one-day event running concurrently with the festival will gather a group of curators, critics, artists, and researchers for an intimate meeting where presentations will be delivered and discussions held concerning works of film, video, and new media art. The founding curator of the Alternative Film/Video Research Forum is Greg de Cuir Jr
