The Images Festival (site) opens in Toronto today and runs through April 9. It's "the largest festival in North America for experimental and independent moving image culture, showcasing the innovative edge of international contemporary media art both on and off the screen," and we're teaming up with them to present a selection of films on your screen.
We begin with short works by Jodie Mack, who hails from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and recently received a media arts fellowship from the Illinois Arts Council; Jorge Lorenzo's Death Match, documenting his cousin's struggle for survival; Fabian Euresti's Everybody's Nuts, an essay on California's Kern County; Sokhna Amar's poetic Pourquoi?; and Brett Bell's Sign-Off (image above), a collage of vintage 16mm Canadiana. Watch this space for more titles to be made available over the coming days.
