Happy new year!
This month marks the start of Loop Collective's 20th Anniversary screenings in Toronto, and I will be presenting a retrospective of my 16mm films at Trinity Square Video on Thursday, January 21st. There will also be retrospectives of films by other collective members and a show of recent works at Innis Town Hall on Thursday, February 4th to accompany the launch of our new book. Hope you can join us!
I am also very happy to announce that Poem will receive its European Premiere at International Film Festival Rotterdam, in a programme entitled "True Desires" on January 29th & 30th. I wish that I could attend IFFR this year - I had a fantastic experience last time, it was a terrific opportunity to see great new works and meet new people - but family and work are keeping me in Toronto for the winter.
Alberta will also be presented at Les Inattendus Film Festival in Lyon, France, another place I wish I could revisit! Lyon is a beautiful city and home to the Lumière factory, the birthplace of cinema!
