Initiated by The Modern Edinburgh Film School for presentation at Stills, FILME is a special programme of poetic and enigmatic moving-image works by experimental filmmaker Ute Aurand. The films, dating from 1980 to the present, address themes of intimacy, the ephemeral, the diary film, and the portrait.

Aurand studied at The Film and Television Academy, Berlin, co-founded the group FilmSamstag and teaches and curates film festivals throughout Europe and the United States. With Maria Lang, she published the influential book Frauen machen Geschichte – 25 Jahre Studentinnen an der DFFB (Women Make History - 25 Years of the Women Students at the DFFB) (1991).
