The Meters Film Festival (MIFF) is a not for profit organisation that has been set up to give audiences a chance to see films that might not be available in other local public venues, while also inspiring local film makers with access to workshops led by leading industry experts.

It is the mission of the MIFF to support the work of talented and dedicated filmmakers and to share their work so that it may inspire, educate, and transform youth and professionals in the youth work field. Our main target group is the generation of developing young filmmakers but we are very delighted at every entry. The essence of this success is to motivate common activity among young inland filmmakers and other international organizations taking part in the audiovisual program.

Fahrenheit 4.33
Project by Fred L’Epee
Jeffrey Beach (Beachfront Productions)
Helicon Films

 

 

Genre Experimental
Year 2016
Duration 12mn. 43s.

 

“The contemporary mythology as the representation of a catharsis. Thousand variations from human vacuum. Translated by the definition of our identities which became amorphous. Stasis. The alteration of our psyche. Vertigo. An existential schism. The Labyrinth built by Daedalus. Death is not an end in itself. Perhaps an inertia. Without reproduction. Neither transposition”.

Film “Spiderland” (2014) now available

 

Film by Fred L’Epee
In collaboration with Kenneth Gentry

Genre Experimental
Year 2014
Duration 07mn 01s

 

Among lost hopes, humankind is in search of our lost identities. This film is an archetype representing the surreality of humankind. Primitive mental images inherited from the earliest human consumers are ever present in our collective unconsciousness. The self-representation from the term “consumer society” is the simplification of the term “consumer-led industrial society.” The notion of consumer society refers to a social and economic order based on the systematic creation and manipulation of desire. This is the way to maintain the consumption of goods, though it’s often unsustainable and even produced and sold in anticipation of a planned obsolescence. However, the consumer continues to blindly consume. Among lost hopes and identities, humankind is now in search of our lost stars. – Synopsis

Film “Bipolar” (2014) now available

 

Film by Fred L’Epee
In collaboration with Kenneth Gentry and Ed Alvarado.

Genre Experimental
Year 2014
Duration 08 mn 50s
 

“The theme of bipolarity is seen through various means: the natural and the man-made; production and destruction; energy and adynamia; peace and apocalypse; equilibrium and disequilibrium — from the beginning to the end. This emerging view of a complex “bipolar climate machinery” urgently calls for a major research effort in order to decipher and quantify the interplay of atmospheric and social processes. When the world is in no accordance with all the cyclic combinations, a more or less bipolar world cannot be inevitable”. – Synopsis
