Experimental is a word that would normally make a moviegoer squirm in his theater seat. The very thought of viewing something out of the ordinary either brings a certain discomfort or grotesque amounts of excitement. Films like these give viewers a jolt from the standard mainstream and even independent fare they’re used to. They’re bold, daring, and more importantly, original.
In its 7th year, CinemaOne Originals Festival shakes things up as it runs from Nov. 9 to 15 at the Shangri-La Plaza Cineplex. It brings together an eclectic group of veteran and newbie independent filmmakers whose works range from horror romcoms and idyllic explorations to very intimate experimental pieces.
