In 2004 the Filmbank and the Filmmuseum in Amsterdam published mm2: Experimental Film in the Netherlands, a survey of the classical avant-garde film in the Netherlands. Since then, the media landscape has undergone major changes, and a generation of directors offering fresh perspectives and innovative techniques has emerged. These new developments are the motivation behind film3. The editors bring together eleven in-depth interviews with young Dutch visual artists in which they discuss their work and motivation, examine avant-garde filmmaking in the Netherlands during the past decade, and forecast the future of the genre.
