In 2015, we proposed a first symposium on experimental cinema. Under the same title (Creating/performing/preserving) we are using the same formula: inviting filmmakers, researchers and specialists in experimental cinema to discuss current practice, the history of the practice and its place in our programming. We also offer, in the evening, high-level programs that intertwine recent short films, performances and screenings of films from the Songs series by Stan Brakhage, in 8mm, kept in our collections.
Guests in attendance
This series proposes a certain state of the art of experimental cinema in Quebec and Canada. Among the titles shown are several firsts produced before or during the pandemic that have never been shown in theaters.
