The Alambic collection invites you to experience the unique and stunning vision of a group of emerging filmmakers, in a series of films each under three minutes long. Alambic is an experimental creative lab offering early-career artists the opportunity to craft original visual stories in the space of a few months. Drawing on their own interior worlds as well as the creative energy from the group, these directors/craftspeople explore a universe where everything is possible, in a collaborative and stimulating environment. Alambic is a space of artistic ferment, where ideas and imagination blend together, are distilled, drop by drop, and then shared with us so we get to know these new creative talents.
An initiative of the NFB’s French Animation Studio, Alambic puts out an annual call for emerging creators who want to participate in this unique experience. The first cohort consisted of three artists, Beatriz, Bren and Bogdan (a.k.a. “the three Bs”) and gave rise to works that are intensely personal while demonstrating a strong sense of community. Let the images wash over you and see chemistry in action!
The 2022 Cohort features: Solid Ground, Modern Alchemy, and By Winds and Tides.
An initiative of the NFB’s French Animation Studio, the Alambic collection features very short films by emerging directors. As part of an experimental creative lab, creators draw on their own imaginations and the group’s collective energy to create unique stories in the space of a few months.
