The Loop Collective is pleased to celebrate our 20th anniversary this year with a series of events designed to highlight our collective's history and development. Since our inception in 1996 with four members, Loop has contributed a significant role to Toronto's experimental filmmaking community through many programming endeavours and touring events from our 30+ cumulative members over the course of the past two decades.
We invite you to join us on Thursday February 4, 2016, at Innis Town Hall, Toronto, for the launch of a newly self-published monograph, featuring essays by Kelly Egan, Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof, R. Bruce Elder, Kathryn Elder, and a chart by John Porter, alongside posters, photographs and artist pages. This limited edition publication will be available with our recent DVD, Selected Works by the Loop Collective, distributed via CFMDC and Re:Voir.

The launch will be accompanied by a screening of recent works on 16mm, 35mm and video from our members that will include several Toronto premieres and a Q&A with artists in attendance, featuring new and recent works by Stephen Broomer, Dan Browne, Colin Clark, Kelly Egan, Angela Joosse, Erika Loic, Shana MacDonald, Ajla Odobasic, Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof, Jocelyn Statia, and Ty Tekatch.

In addition, Loop will present three evenings of retrospective screenings of our members' works in anticipation of the Innis Town Hall launch.

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. Loop has presented gallery installations, screenings, and artist talks by renowned figures including Michael Snow, Carl Brown, Chris Welsby, Christian Lebrat, Double Negative Collective, Richard Kerr, R. Bruce Elder, 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), WNDX Festival of Moving Image (Winnipeg), NASCAD (Halifax), TRUCK Gallery (Calgary), Cineworks (Vancouver), Factory Media Center (Hamilton), Leeds International Film Festival (UK), and the 2010 Canadian Retrospective at EXiS Festival (Seoul).
