Expanded is a non–competitive section that reflects the trend of modern documentary, which is expanding its territory to ‘Moving Image’ by embracing the changes brought about by the reorganization of the digital film environment. The term expanded cinema originated from the American underground in the 1960s and referred to a movement that promoted the expansion of venues, media, and platforms for the production, exhibition, and performance of works. Our Expanded section respects its historical context but aims to provide audiences with a new viewing experience, bold experimentation, and boundary expansion that is active in contemporary documentary films. Some of the screenings in this section, covering both feature and short films, go beyond the constraints of theatrical projections and are presented as single– screen, multi–screen, or screenless video installations in museums and exhibition spaces. Taking advantage of this purpose, we decided to call the movie experience outside the theater a “non–theatrical program.” The first exhibition of the expanded non–theatrical program will be held at ‘Camp Greaves’, which was used as a US military base in the Civilian Control Line. Seven domestic and foreign writers who sympathized with our purpose participated in launching the first program. We are sure that DMZ Docs will become an identity– establishing program that is differentiated in terms of screening location, method, and viewing experience.
