After several years’ experience with film practices in Madrid, the “Cine sin Autor” (Authorless Cinema) group is starting its adventure of building its first Factory. Intermediae will host the first stage of the project and will be the institution facilitating these first processes, located in the neighbourhood surrounding Matadero Madrid.
The CsA group intends to test its production methods on a larger scale, in order to make lend greater visibility to its filmmaking processes, which are participatory, horizontal and inclusive. We believe that these processes are the foundation of a new film production model in keeping with the 21st century.
The key to this methodology is that in all the phases of film production (script, shooting, editing, final cut and film management), the directors, protagonists and managers are non-professional people involved in the process, which is also open to anyone who wants to take part and intervene in these processes.
Cinema has left behind its old practices and turned into a social event. For three years now, we have been able to read the way the most contemporary texts and actions place the current moment as the origin of the Second History of Cinema.
