Sunday afternoon gatherings for idle Southerners. One guest brings in the flicks, another the bites. We provide the floor space and fuel the discussions.

Key interests: artists films, radical / experimental education, alternative communities, shaping of collective imaginaries, politics & aesthetics, the ‘social turn’, the ‘speculative turn’. Showcasing local directors alongside international stars, making all the right connections.

Between 2015-17, QUIET ODD was a partnership between ODD and the Czech Centre in Bucharest, with guests selected by Cristina Bogdan and František Zachoval. .

In 2017, it functioned as a collaboration with Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.), featuring a selection by curator Silke Wittig from the Video Forum collection.

In 2018, we focus on artist films from South-East Asia.
