  • Come Down: A Film Screening

    By on

    A Collaboration between the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre and Queer Media Database bring you rarely seen 16mm gems!

    This program approaches the historical role of Queer cultural production in the formation of our senses of self. In a time when feelings are facts and there is a broader questioning of the primacy of First-Person Narrative Truth, we take this opportunity for a post-Pride breather to make meaning of our queer realities. This program is made up of a selection of 16mm film from the CFMDC collection that speak not only to the times in which they were produced but also to the complex political landscape we find ourselves in now.

  • Slow Short Film Festival 2018

    By on

    The Slow Short Film Festival celebrates work engaging with a stylistic tendency grown conspicuous in the past three decades of world art cinema. Very broadly this style consists of long takes, long shots, a focus on non-professional actors, and an emphasis on everyday activities deemed surplus to mainstream storytelling. Leading figures include Béla Tarr, Tsai Ming-Liang, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Abbas Kiarostami, Lav Diaz, Pedro Costa and Ben Rivers.

  • Cinema Parenthèse #3: Neil Henderson (in person) & Guy Sherwin

    By on

    Neil Henderson’s work involves varied ways of mapping and exploring site, strata, and landscape. With static long takes, Henderson uses the landscape as a formal structure, reflecting on presence and place, repetitive variations of similar subjects/objects in a way that reminds us of Robert Smithsson and Richard Long's land-art, and photographic work by Ger Dekkers and Jan Dibbets among others. For example in "Tidal Island" (2014), Henderson returns to the site of a circular man-made island off the east coast of England.
