The Loop Collective is a group of independent media artists formed in 1996 to develop a public platform integrating experimental film and video with other art forms. We program and produce works for presentation through exhibitions and events in both traditional and non-traditional spaces. Our mission is to explore the roots of experimental film and video by creating a dialogue with other art media. We strive to promote experimental film and video for critical engagement by cultivating relations among different artistic communities. The Loop Collective has presented gallery installations, screenings, and artist talks by renowned figures including Michael Snow, Chris Welsby, Christian Lebrat, Carolee Schneemann, and Jósef Robakowski. Programmes of films by Loop members have screened at venues including The National Film Board of Canada (Toronto), Cinema Parallele (Montreal), Winnipeg Cinematheque, NASCAD (Halifax), Club SAW (Ottawa), The Factory (Hamilton), Leeds International Film Festival (United Kingdom), and the 2010 Canadian Retrospective at EXiS Festival, (Diagonal Film Archive, Seoul).

As part of Loop’s fifteen-year anniversary, its members have produced an anthology of their own writings and a DVD containing a small selection of their films.

The DVD includes:

- fugitive l(i)ght (Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof, 2005, 9 min., 16mm, colour, sound)
fugitive l(i)ght emphasizes rhythmic structures over and above representation, by drawing the viewer's gaze into a maze of multiple folds of continuously unfolding colour patterns.

- c: won eyed jail (Kelly Egan , 2005, 4 min 30 sec , 35 mm, colour, silent)
c: won eyed jail is a 35mm ?lm projects consisting of two parts: a quilt patterned out of 35mm still negatives and 35mm found motion picture, and a traditional ?lm print of the quilt that is screened through a 35mm motion picture projector. The dual existence of c: won eyed jail a projected ?lm and as a sculptural object is meant to call into question the originary place of analysis of ?lm: is it in the content projected on the screen or in the ?lmstrip/?lm negative---the “score” of the ?lmmaker? The quilt itself allows audience members access to the negative of the ?lm, an art object normally sequestered from its viewing public

- Thaw (Shana MacDonald, 2006, 8 min, 16mm, colour, silent)
Thaw expresses the ?lmmaker’s personal frustration with images of femininity within visual culture. Using images from the canon of Western art as a starting point, the ?lm explores the feelings of panic and immobility that accompany the exploration of one’s own sense of self in the face of cultural expectations.

- Parícutin (Erika Loic, 2007, 14 min, 16mm, colour, sound)
In February of 1943, a fissure appeared in the cornfield of Dionisio Pulido, a farmer in the Mexican state of Michoacán. Ash and incandescent rocks emerging from this fissure preceded lava flows, violent explosions, and the birth of Mexico's youngest volcano. Parícutin combines animation with footage shot at the current site of the volcano to recreate the full life cycle of the volcano.

- Quanta (Dan Browne, 2008, 10 minutes, 16mm, b&w, silent)
Quanta is an investigative record of patterns found in the observable Universe, as contained within the perceptions of a Bolex taken for an afternoon excursion in a rowboat.

- Shapes Eat Shapes (Angela Joosse, 2006, 3 min 16 sec, digital video, colour, sound)
Shapes Eat Shapes is a sound-image waltz. The dance is performed between interior bodily rhythms, and exterior urban patterns and grids. In this way, the work explores the musical and rhythmic qualities of being-in-the-world.

- Levitas (Angela Joosse 2009, 1min, dv, colour, sound)
While in New York I lived in an apartment which had an excellent view of the constant flow of air planes making their way along the path towards landing. This one minute video is a visual music piece that plays with airborne things.

- Spiders in Eden (Ty Tekatch, 2008, 11 min, digital video, colour, sound)
There's trouble in Eden! Spiders have taken over the garden and their intoxicating bite threatens paradise. Guest narrator Walt Whitman.

- The Changing Light (Ilama Gutman, 2003 /1 min 30 sec, DV, colour, sound)

- Christ Church - Saint James (Stephen Broomer, 2011, 6 min 38 sec, 16mm, colour, sound)

- Thought Form (Katherin McInnis, 2010, 2min 46 sec, 16mm, b&w, silent)

- Morning (Ajla Odobasic, 2011, 4min 13 sec, S8/ DV, color, sound)

- Many Glimpses (Collin Clark, 2011, 13 min, HD, color, sound)

- Movement, Stasis (documentation) (Kassandra Prus, 2009, 8min 51sec, DV, colour, sound)
