Abandon!Abandon!, Avanti!, and Even the Sun Practices Time by Ej Nussbaum. Ej Nussbaum earned her MFA at University of Illinois at Chicago and her BA from Hampshire College. Her filmmaking practice traverses both analogue and digital time machines. She uses humour and sentimentality to question how larger power systems are embodied and contested in the intimate realms of desire and memory. 

Akedelic, Detour, D Cum Pose, and Canadian Gothic by Apostoly Kouroumalis (Toly A.K). Recent experimental works by Apostoly Peter Kouroumalis (Toly A.K.). Toly studied at Concordia University and is a filmmaker, painter, and musician.

Engine Complex: Bridge/Seed by Bryan Morello & Matthew Endler (2021 / 6:35 / USA). A fraught passage of the camera's eye through fantastical architectural and psychological spaces. Somewhere between a body and a building, the lens tumbles and lurches through time and space, caught between observation and escape.

Electric Water by Nancy Baric (2021 / 25:30 / Canada). An experimental documentary in three acts, exploring personal and Indigenous relationships to water.

Evidence of Wind by Gye-Joong Kim (2021 / 26:14 / Canada). The filmmaker impulsively starts capturing the image and sound of wind. He realizes the only way to capture the wind is to show, instead, trees in motion. The limitation becomes the motif for philosophical contemplation of how we understand the nature of truth that can be learned from something else than the truth itself. 

Pinhole Park by Alex Mackenzie (2021 / 11:31 / Canada). Created using a 35mm film tin modified into an outward-looking 59-pinhole camera that registers images on a single film loop mounted in the tin. Each loop is exposed in one moment with 59 pinhole "lenses" to create as many distinct images that, when presented in series, create a panning of the landscape in various directions.

P L U M E by Mike Rollo (2022 / 7:20 / Canada). Fingers pluck fallen evidence of flight; placed and traced to make avian light.

Saving Gorillas. One Sip at a Time. by Rafaela Galindo & Petros Neguse (2020 / 5:34 / Canada). Uganda is home to the critically endangered mountain gorillas, surrounded by people near their protected habitat who are also struggling to survive. 

The Shadow of My Life by Hajar Moradi (2021 / 15:47 / Canada). Hanna, a recent immigrant to Canada from Iran, struggles with depression as she tries to process memories of Iran and find her place in a new country. As she rediscovers her passion for painting she finds inspiration from other artists. Told in graphic monochrome animation with occasional striking splashes of red. 

Wood and Metal Bars by Richard Reeves (2021 / 10:25 / Canada). A meditative experience through colour, form and sound.
