FALL 2020 FILM, VIDEO and INTERACTIVE ART WORKSHOPS
As we continue to work through these difficult and unpredictable times, we will be hosting our workshops differently, pivoting to an on-line delivery (Zoom) for our theory based workshops, with the same roster of experienced industry instructors. We are pleased to still be able to offer these workshops for our members and the film community as a whole. There are a number of workshops we feel would be of intererst to the Experimental Cinema community. Learn more at LIFT.ca

For the fourth month of our WORKS IN PROGRESS series, Iris Film Collective member Alex MacKenzie will be continuing work on his long form expanded cinema performance THE HOLLOW MOUNTAIN, a landscape film of topography, contours, and nature in abstraction.
As creative devices, humor and play have the power to both soothe and subvert. When juxtaposed with serious themes in art, humor and play may create cognitive dissonance in the viewer where, amidst their internal conflict, viewers can often laugh at their own discomfort. Henri Bergson noted in “Laughter: An Essay on the Meaning of the Comic,” there is an “…absence of feeling which usually accompanies laughter.” This absence creates a space for viewers to unpack the deeper conceptual underpinnings of the work.

How does technology reproduce the mechanisms of vision? What questions arise from the intersections between capitalism, art, cinema, the mind, and neuroscience? What are the political, social, and philosophical consequences of the technological expansion and recreation of the visible? Who decides how we see and what we see? This following February at Cineteca Madrid we will explore the visual imaginaries produced by the technologies of cinema, art, performance, critical thinking, and virtual reality that amplify our ways of seeing and being in the world.
