Hors Pistes 2010
Hors Pistes 2010 opens today at the Centre Pompidou. This cutting-edge film and narrative festival focuses on new ways of using images, taking into account new methods of production and circulation of contemporary images and placing itself at the intersection of cinema and events, mixing elements from contemporary art, cinema, music or even fashion and especially this year, gastronomy. Highlights of the 5th edition include the festival’s two special guests: chef Inaki Aizpitarte (Le Châteaubriand), ‘enfant terrible’ of the culinary new wave, who presents a menu of delicious films, of sweet and sour videos and orchestrates the opening night with the help of ‘appetite usherettes’. And artist in residence Andrea Crews presides over a recycling workshop, installed inside the festival ‘Maison’ located in the downstairs foyer, transforming stocks of old clothes into cutting-edge fashion in a sustainable development process. Her collective will present a fashion show of the unique pieces created on Sun 28 at 6pm.
