About EMO Collective

EMO (Experimental Media Outsiders) is an emerging artist collective started by Emily Carr University students and graduates in early 2019. We provide workshops and art-related resources for transgender and two-spirit identified individuals, women identified individuals, individuals with disabilities, BIWOC and anyone else facing institutional/educational/accessibility barriers to learning computer programming, electronics, analogue filmmaking and interactive media making. EMO is committed to decolonial and anti-oppressive frameworks, tactics and ways of learning. 

As a collective, EMO is invested in continuing the experimental and radical history of analogue practices, including cine-film, expanded cinema and installation work. At a time when the resources and space committed to analogue practices have become scarce, we believe that self-determined initiatives are an important aspect for sustaining them.

EMO acknowledges that it was founded and practices on unceded Coast Salish territories belonging to the Skwxwú7mesh-ulh Temíx̱w (Squamish), xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ təməxʷ (Tsleil-Waututh) people.

LAND BACK

Curated by Eli Hirtle

·

LAND BACK is a movement. At the center of this burgeoning field of theory borne out of the collective actions at blockades and frontlines across the globe is the idea of reclaiming jurisdiction of Indigenous territories back into the hands, hearts and minds of the original stewards of those lands and waters. Working in tandem with the resurgence of cultural practices and protocols, protecting and taking care of what has nurtured our ancestors and what our future generations will inherit is paramount to this groundswell of energy and momentum.

LAND BACK is many things to many people, but at the root of this project is presencing and reconnecting with our lands and waters in meaningful ways. We come from the land. We are the land. The land is our home, our mother, our caregiver. We have responsibilities and relationships with our plant, animal and supernatural kin that we must uphold, respect, and through these acts of reclamation, renew and repair these sacred bonds. 

These films encompass the ideas of LAND BACK in a myriad of ways. By documenting the defence of land and water as it’s unfolding on the ground, or telling stories that relate to our kinship connections and responsibilities, these filmmakers are helping to realize the dream of how we can relate to the land and each other in transformative ways into the future.

Welcome to the IMAA biennial media arts conference! With the Pacific region acting as virtual host this year, CineVic would like to showcase a range of work from our members and community artists. We’ve included films from longtime members of the society as well as newcomers, from Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, from our analogue One Take Super 8 Event and our annual CINESPARK production program. Even though we cannot enjoy these films together in the cinema, we are excited to showcase them to a national audience online. Enjoy!

Cinevolution and VIVO Screening

·

About Cinevolution

A grassroots, women-led, migrant-driven non-profit arts organization, Cinevolution’s mission is to:

 -Promote innovation and critical discourse through film and new media art works

-Bring new ways of thinking and expression into cross-cultural communication, and 

-Foster creative exchange and collaboration among filmmakers and media artists in Canada and around the world

Founded in 2007, Cinevolution has been committed to making experimental film and media art accessible for all since its inception, with a particular focus on connecting and empowering immigrants and other historically marginalized communities through community festivals, participatory media art projects, film screenings, workshops, and live performance events.

Sitting at the nexus of art, academia and community, they seek to decentralize art while connecting people across cultural, political, geographic and linguistic boundaries in order to foster media literacy, stimulate critical discourse, and cultivate creativity. Their work is powered by the belief that art can transcend cultural, social and linguistic divides to transform both the artist and the audience.
