FILM SCREENING

Baltic Experimental
Films in Canada

Toronto/Montreal

28.-31.03.2020.

Curated and presented by Ieva Balode

28.03.2022. at 7pm PIX Film gallery, Toronto (presented by LIFT)

31.03.2022. at 7pm Cinémathèque québécoise (presented by OK LA)

 

The programme includes works by established experimental filmmakers who shoot their films on 16mm and 8mm film formats, as well as an ever-growing numbers of new authors. Many films in the programme, either directly or metaphorically reflect on the experiences that we all met during the pandemic. This reveals itself through in-depth self-reflection, anxiety and, in the end - self acceptance found in the films from the programme.
