Lille Nord de France
Experimental film or experimental cinema is a type of cinema.Its origins can be found in European avant-garde movements of the twenties.
An experimental film is often characterized by the absence of linear narrative, the use of various abstracting techniques, asynchronous (non-diegetic) sound or even the absence of any sound track. Most such films are made on very low budgets, self-financed or financed through small grants, with a minimal crew. Experimental film emerged in Europe in the 1920s because cinema had matured as a medium and avant-garde movements in the visual arts were growing.
