Taking place in the atmospheric Swedenborg House in Bloomsbury, Swedenborg Film Festival has released details of this year's event taking place later in March. The festival features 16 films by international artists, with the guest judge celebrated photographer and documentary filmmaker Bridget Smith. The free event explores the legacy of the Swedish philosopher Emanuel Swedenborg, a seminal influence on Surrealist traditions, and in particular the great English artist William Blake. Featuring films of 30 minutes or less and co-curated by Gareth Evans (Whitechapel Gallery) and Nora Foster (Frieze), the festival invites entries from the latest new and established talent of experimental and artist film. The only film festival in the world inspired by the work of a single philosopher, the SFF has received responses from thousands of filmmakers around the world since its launch in 2010.
