  • DIM Cinema: Groundwork

    By on

    In equestrian culture, Groundwork is comprised of exercises that mature a horse’s response to its rider’s cues and the environment. This program of landscape films from the 1960s through 1980s similarly demonstrates structural and formal methods used by artists to finely tune their perception of natural phenomena. In The Sky on Location, French cinematographer Babette Mangolte focuses her camera on seasonal light and its variegation of the American West’s colour palette.

  • 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.

  • 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.
