Laura Walde holds an MA degree in Film Studies and English Literature from the Universities of Zurich and Aberdeen. Since 2013, she works as a freelance curator/programmer for Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur. Since October 2017, she is part of the PhD research project “Exhibiting Film: Challenges of Format”, supervised by Prof. Dr. Fabienne Liptay at the University of Zurich. Embracing the concept of format as a key to accessing the field of film exhibition, the project follows three main objectives: (1) to investigate the institutional and artistic practices of film exhibition, as well as their reflection and display in the films themselves; (2) to explore the material and discursive conditions and constraints of the circulation of films in different exhibition environments through notions of format; (3) to conceptualize the epistemological potential and cultural impact of film’s exhibition practices within the larger social and political sphere.
