  • Mire: Mechanics of the Copy

    This special session is the launch of the "Re-engineering the industry" program, dedicated to a Mire laboratory machine, the Debrie contact printer, which makes it possible to copy 16mm film. In the coming months, masterclass, workshop and artist residency will aim at a dialogue between artists and technicians in order to perpetuate and develop the use of machinery abandoned by the film industry and to reappropriate its use for artistic purposes.

  • MuMaBoX #51: Le Film est déjà commencé?

    In 1951, Maurice Lemaître made his first film, Le Film est déjà commencé? (Has the film already started?). It is the first attempt to destroy the normal framework of the cinematographic representation in which each element is upset: image, sound, screen, venue, spectators... It is the advent of syncinema: it is no longer just a film projection, but a cinema session that has become a work of art as a whole.

  • Intimate Observer: Family Portrayals by Marjorie Keller

    In her brief life, Marjorie Keller made nearly thirty films in her own distinctive cinematic voice. From her earliest efforts in the late 1960s, Marjorie was attracted to film’s potential to portray the complexity of private events and personal relationships, mostly in response to family life. Her gestural and vivid camerawork, along with an intricate approach to poetic editing, created a body of work that is unsurpassed in its intimacy and conveyance of feelings and concerns.

  • Montreal Underground Film Festival 2017

    Submissions for the 12th Montréal Underground Festival are now open! MUFF celebrates low-budget filmmaking and promotes those who challenge the constraints and conventions of mainstream Hollywood. Co-founded by Karina Mariano and Zoë Brown, MUFF has morphed into a collective of independent filmmakers, writers, teachers and cinephiles committed to seeking out edgy films bristling with a sense of creative freedom, energy and experimentation. Films in any way affiliated with a major motion picture studio, and “calling-card” films (aka, slick, thinly disguised shout-outs to the commercial industry), were ineligible.
