Programmers:  Karina Mariano and Kristopher Woofter

Eight short films that encourage a more tactile reception of the moving image. Here, sounds, colours, surface, glitch, grain, and decay combine to evoke painterly textures that pull the spectator out of content and into contemplation and sensation regarding the medium itself.

Huit courts-métrages qui encouragent une approche tactile au film. Ici, les sons, les couleurs, la surface, le grain et la décomposition s’unissent pour évoquer des textures peintes qui font sortir le spectateur du contenu et l’amènent à contempler et ressentir le support même du film.
