Celluloid Only (restricted to Super 8, 16mm, and 35mm)
Lindsay McIntyre is a film artist with an MFA from Concordia and a BFA from the University of Alberta who generally prefers to do things the hard way. She applies her interest in film chemistry, analogue technologies and structure to make award-winning short 16mm films and expanded cinema performances. Her film works are often processed-based, involve documentary and experimental techniques, and she even makes her own 16mm film with handmade silver gelatin emulsion. Interested simultaneously in the apparatus of cinema, portraiture, representation and personal histories, she bridges gaps in collective experience and remains dedicated to integrating theory and practice, form and content. Internationally, she has contributed a body of knowledge to the practice of silver gelatin emulsion making and coating for motion picture film and teaches this and other celluloid-based practices around the world. She was honoured with the REVEAL Indigenous Art Award from the Hnatyshyn Foundation (2017) and was named the Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton Award recipient for Excellence in Media Arts by the Canada Council for the Arts (2013). She is Assistant Professor of Film + Screen Arts at Emily Carr University of Art and Design on unceded Coast Salish territories and is of Inuk and settler Scottish decent.
