A Year, Dir. Nick White, 2018
An examination of the natural textures of the world and their beautifully dramatic changes over the course of a year.
And By the Night, Dir. Anna Kipervaser, 2017
After a period of no revelations, Surah al-Duha was revealed to Prophet Muhammad, stating that God had neither forsaken nor forgotten him. And to be patient. The film is also a response to the filmmaker’s abortion.
A-5H1, Dir. Paz Ramirez Larrain and Laura Acosta, 2018
A-5H1is a video performance piece that demonstrates tension between corporality and territoriality throughout a series of public interventions turning quotidian places of transit into surreal stages. It presents three large plastic structures, which contain, and are manipulated by, a body that traverses various public spaces in the city of Montreal.
my popsicle queen, Dir. Cole Forrest, 2019
my popsicle queen is an experimental dance film exploring personal experiences of anxiety, youth, and loss. How do we make positive change for ourselves when we feel we are losing our youth?
Water Under the Bridge, Dir. Trevor Blumas, 2017
Water Under the Bridge explores the hierarchical power dynamics between performer, filmmaker, and spectator through the documentation of a dance performance.
Favourite Things, Dir. Carol Cece Anderson, 2019 (Work-In-Progress)
Favourite Things is an experiment with form: dissolving, single framing, jump cutting, street filming, then cutting and splicing film.
Night Shift, Dir. Alice Liu, 2019
Night Shift is a love letter to the filmmaker’s memories of her early childhood spent in their hometown of Jinan, China. It is an exploration of feelings towards how much the city has changed upon visiting Jinan again after years away.
