TOUR PROGRAMS

ID Docs – Identity cannot be reduced to stats on a badge. It is both personal and public, elusive and fixed. Using a patient camera and lyrical imagery, these filmmakers gently probe how society, biology, place, and even appliances play a role in who we are and how we think of ourselves and others.

Private Eyes – Private Eyes features an eclectic selection of experimental documentaries and animated works from the UK, Czech Republic, Norway and the US. The Intimacy of Strangers, follows a clandestine film crew that prowls the streets, capturing phone conversations. The filmmaker "steals" these intimate moments and explores the ever-shrinking gap between private and public spheres. Deep Woods is a performative video that lures male participants through evocative advertisements. These innovative works reveal the power of modern technologies to upend of notions of privacy.

TOUR
The MISSION of MadCat is to curate and promote high-quality, women-directed, independent and experimental films and videos. To achieve our mission, MadCat not only holds its yearly festival each September in the Bay Area - we send a selection of each Festival out across the country.

Since 2000 the MadCat Tour has been a huge success and hits cities across the country, achieving critical and popular success at universities, art houses and museums. MadCat takes two programs of short films and videos on the road. The strong line-up and international scope of these programs appeals to a wide audience base.
