EARTH DAY RECYCLED FILM FEST

SUN, MAR 22 / 2 pm
Organized by Jenny Bisch
FREE ADMISSION!

Earth Day has been recognized since 1970 to raise awareness on issues of conservation and sustainability. This evening we present a program of Canadian short films that embrace the spirit of the cause.

Film and video media typically require the use of expensive equipment that must frequently be replaced due to physical damage or the release of improved technology. Video tapes decay with age and must be replaced. Film is developed with toxic chemicals. As it stands, works in film and video create a great deal of waste.

All films in this program are made out of recycled and found footage or have been shot with video equipment that is now considered obsolete, embracing the spirit of “reduce, reuse, recycle”. This program shows that film and video has the potential to be a sustainable art medium.

About Jenny Bisch:
Winnipeg filmmaker and curator, Jenny Bisch has been involved with many filmmaking projects. Her irreverent first film The Arousing Adventures of Sailor Boy. Created through the WFG’s hand processing experiment workshop, it has been screened internationally in New York, the Nertherlands and at the prestigious Ann Arbor Film Festival. Bisch recently released the animated short Praying Mantis Upskirt, with Alison Bile.

Her curatorial involvement with the Sugar and Splice Film Festival led to a strong interest in seeking out and presenting the work of contemporary women filmmakers. More recently she curated a program of Manitoba experimental and animated shorts entitled EXPERIMENTAL ECHOES for Independent Film Week, which screened in November 2008.
