CINEMATHEQUE AT HOME

New Toronto Works

Wed, Oct 28 / 7 pm
Free Program
Online Screening & Panel Discussion: Wednesday, October 28, 2020
Screening: 7pm (CST) on Facebook & Twitch
Panel: 8pm (CST)

Pleasure Dome’s New Toronto Works is a high voltage programme of new media artworks: a cinematic screening stitched together by a live wire. In an exhibition that combines emerging and established artists; and features works that range from glitch art to animation, essay films to archival interventions, ‘newness’ describes the conceptual and aesthetic intensity that links these ten experimental pieces. Here, this programme’s refusal of a singular connective thematic tissue makes for a pulsating trip across works that are truly distinct from one another.

As each short film begins, our spectatorial experience is refreshed by the incisive imaginations of these Toronto-based creators who probe urgent and unexpected questions.

our location

We’re located in the heart of Winnipeg's historic Exchange District in the Artspace building. We are across the street from Old Market Square at the corner of Arthur Street and Bannatyne - one block west of Main.

The Winnipeg Film Group is located on Treaty 1 Territory and on the ancestral lands of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene Peoples and in the homeland of the Métis Nation. We offer our respect and gratitude to the traditional caretakers of this land.
