Highlights from epff9

Huge thanks to all who made it to the epff9: interiors, exteriors, which has proven to be a hugely successful event.

The theme of epff9, which took place from 2-5 November 2017 at BAFTA, was Interiors/Exteriors. These apparently opposed territories can at times harmoniously coexist, while at others they clash with each other in painful, disturbing or, possibly, transformative ways.

This idea is highly pertinent to both cinema and psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis is at its very core about how we experience within us what is happening in the world outside. Conversely, it also investigates how the roles we assume in external reality – particularly in relationships – are shaped and affected by our inner worlds.

Cinema, too, has always explored ideas around relatedness and disconnection; surfaces and depths; visible images and what lies behind them; our deep inner worlds and the vast, sometimes unfathomable world beyond us.
