April 20, 2015
During the 1920s art house cinema was beginning to gain its reputation as respectable filmmaking. This opened the doors for even more radical types of movies, one that would even question the basic narrative structure all films were following at the time. This was known as experimental or avant-garde cinema. They were usually short films produced outside of Hollywood to challenge the cinematic conventions of the film industry.
Most directors were forced to use their own money in order to make these films. They were usually shown in the same theaters designed for art house cinema, until their reputation grew enough for theaters specialized in experimental filmmaking.
