Presented by the Lightproof Film Collective
Experimental filmmakers tend to toil in isolation, creating works that exist on the fringe of moving image making. In recent years, the decline of film labs, production centres, and film’s increasing expense has been accompanied by a rise of interest in DIY analogue filmmaking, spurring the creation of community-based informal support structures. This online screening of twelve experimental short films celebrates the output of two recently formed Canadian film collectives, one in Ottawa and one in the Maritimes, each of which seeks to support experimental analogue film practices.
