Dear WNDX audience member,
We welcome you to the massive bonfire that is the 8th edition of the WNDX Festival of Moving Image. We are so excited to be able to again throw ourselves into this annual celebration of innovative new work in experimental film, video, installation, and moving image performance from Canada and around the world.
Among the many delights in store for this year’s Festival, we are very pleased to welcome visiting senior artist Michael Snow, whose groundbreaking body of work has influenced generations of artists and filmmakers, and who will be featured in a multiple-program focus. New Zealand artist Nova Paul will present her own work in addition to a screening featuring works by New Zealand filmmakers. Denver/Toronto artist and filmmaker Christina Battle will be present for the launch of her installation The Twelve Devil’s Graveyards Around the World.
Also, the ever-popular One Take Super-8 Event returns, and a new selection of video installations from around the world will be situated at various sites around the city. The collective was amazed to find this year’s submissions to the Festival coming from even farther afield and in greater numbers than ever. We hope you enjoy the selections in our open call programs, which offer an absorbing cross-section of new moving image work from the prairies, Canada, and around the world.
This year’s lineup of screenings, performances, launches, parties and talks will set your mind ablaze! Please join us in experiencing the most intriguing, confounding, and vibrant new works in moving image art.
