  • To the Moon

    Sight Unseen collaborates for a second time with the Station North Arts & Entertainment District, supported in part by the T. Rowe Price Foundation, to present a cinematic celebration on the 45th anniversary of the Moon landing. These moving titles exclusively feature the Moon through a myriad of illuminating forms and stellar techniques such as digital collage, glitch technology, hand-processing, in-camera, long-exposure, optical printing, single-frame and found footage.

    The group program will take place in the great outdoors at the Station North Ynot Lot on the evening of the next full moon! Not only that, but there will be a lunar eclipse that same morning!

    The forthcoming definitions of or related to the Moon, featured in Celestial Object by Ben Balcom, are contemplated and confronted by these artists through acoustic experimentation, chemical treatment, light alteration and time manipulation made possible within the cinematic realm.

  • FNC Lab: 10th Anniversary of Videodrome

    In collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art in Toronto (MOCCA), the Festival du nouveau cinéma presents the Lab evening welcoming with great joy the hybrid event VIDEODROME Tour for its 10th year anniversary

    Mash-up, cut-up, video art and underground culture club collide to break boundaries between audience and artist. 4 performers, Jubal Brown, NwodtleM, Ouananiche et Sarin, will create an intense audiovisual synesthesia during 3 hours. Videodrome will strive for televisionary excess and sensory overload.

    Preceded by the immersive SPACE NOISE performed by Japanese filmmaker Takashi Makino. 16mm and video projectors, live soundtrack, smoke machine and 3D glasses will allow the public to enter and experience a space filled with lights that give a physical presence to the images, well beyond the screen.

    See you on Friday, October 10, at Agora du coeur des sciences de l'UQAM, in Montréal (QC), from 8pm

    Friday, October 10, 2014 - 20:00 to Saturday, October 11, 2014 - 00:00

  • The Criterion Collection: Nicole Lizée's Iconic Remixes at the FNC Lab

    The Festival du nouveau cinéma is pleased to annouce its Lab performance entitled The Criterion Collection. A series of glitch-based pieces delve into the worlds of iconic films and filmmakers that have made a marked impact on the aesthetic of Canadian composer Nicole Lizée.

    This performance combines extracts from her previous work, Hitchcock Études (2010), Behind the Sound of Music (2014), Kubrick Études (2013). Each work is constructed around damaged and deconstructed audio and video - chewed and warped videocassettes. The resulting errors and imperfections are woven together to create a sonic landscape over which accompanying instrumental material - itself emulating the traits of broken or malfunctioning media - is performed live.
