Sweater

The Sweater

Jean-Pierre Marchant

2020 - Canada - 5 mins - Documentary / Experimental

Ontario Premiere

“The Sweater” blends 16mm hand processed film with found footage and video to explore childhood memories triggered by finding the last thing my deceased father gave me. Using short vignettes, I tell several stories that defined our relationship to each other, and how the world shaped us both.


Parkdale Dreams

Parkdale Dreams

Jerusa Leão

2021 - Canada - 1 min - Fiction

World Premiere

Parkdale dreams is a short film that portrays the ambiguous underground lifestyle of one of the most iconic and rough neighbourhoods of Toronto, Canada. This neighbourhood has been going through a process of gentrification in the last decade which allowed us to create a story about the ambivalence and the multi-faceted realities of its dwellers. This short film intends to expose the importance and the impact of mental health and awareness.


Birds

Birds

Madi Piller

2021 - Canada - 3 mins - Experimental

World Premiere

A cameraless film that expands the hybrid modes of material exploration. The film starts with plant leaf imprints and organic processes on 16mm film. It is optically printed, DIY, for additional digital manipulations. Pixels and film textures weave in this abstract film to create new hybrid experiences, blurring the lines of the origins of the material. The soundtrack was made in close collaboration with Stefan Voglsinger (Vienna). I transmitted the idea of flapping images of birds and Stefan created the sound environment for the images. We worked online due to COVID-19.

Fragmentos

Juan Pablo Pinto

2021 - Canada - 6 mins - Experimental

World Premiere

BORRACHERO

Gustavo Cerquera Benjumea

2019 - Canada - 8 mins - Animation

Toronto Premiere

After a job goes wrong, a woman flees to her hometown in southern Colombia. Along the way she encounters a mysterious figure, which might be the embodied spirit of an ancient plant.


Jatun

Jatun LLaxta, Noh Kaah….

Marcos Arriaga

2020 - Canada - 8 mins - Experimental

Some of the world’s oldest archeological sites take on new form and meaning when viewed from a different perspective, raising pointed questions about how our history is curated and presented.


Alerta!

Alerta!!

SoJin Chun

2020 - Canada - 1 min - Experimental

Alerta! was created as part of the Exquisite Corpse Video Project, an online International project with contributing video artists around the globe using this surrealist technique for collective artmaking. Using contemporary archival footage from youtube, I responded to the early days of the pandemic while witnessing the mediocre responses to Covid19 by politicians around the world.


Unarchive

Unarchive

Cecilia Araneda

2020 - Canada - 13 mins - Documentary

Unarchive juxtaposes the filmmaker’s father’s life with the political history of Chile – his birthplace – over the past century. It reflects on how we remember and how we forget, and the role of the camera in transcending the complex space in between.


Wayfarers

Wayfarers/Caminantes

Franci Duran / Vanessa John

2021 - Canada - 7 mins - Experimental

World Premiere

A collaboration between sound artist Vanessa John and experimental media artist, Francisca Duran. Featuring a poem by Chiloe poet, Rosabetty Muñoz.


Ride Fair

Ride Fair

Javier Lovera

2021 - Canada - 7 mins - Documentary

Three fearless community organizers with a history of standing up against big tech corporations, embark on an uphill political fight to regulate Uber and Lyft in Toronto and force them to cap the number of drivers in the city, and to provide living wages and better training for their drivers.
