Publications

LIFT carries out a variety of publications projects in support of our broader work in media art production. From 1985 - 2007 the organization published a regular magazine documenting happenings, controversies and DIY guides related to film production in Toronto and beyond. In 2007 LIFT discontinued the magazine to dedicate our resources to production and training. We are still publishing exhibition catalogues on a project basis and will be releasing our first book in collaboration with the Images Festival and YYZ Books in 2013.

 

The archive below includes all LIFT's magazines and our more recent exhibition catalogues for download as pdfs. Many thanks to the LIFT members who spent hundreds of hours scanning the masters of the early publications to produce this archive. Without their contribution to our collective history this project would be impossible.

 

All material is copyright of LIFT and/or the individual authors and may not be reproduced in any media without written consent. Researchers and those wishing to reprint material and/or secure higher resolution copies should contact LIFT's administration via the contact form.
