Andreas Wutz – Fall 2017 Studio Immersion Program

LIFT AND PIX FILM ANNOUNCES THE SECOND
STUDIO IMMERSION PROGRAM RESIDENT—ANDREAS WUTZ

Toronto, November 2, 2017—The Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) and PIX FILM is pleased to announce that German filmmaker Andreas Wutz is now in residence as our second filmmaker in the new Studio Immersion Program, supported by the Petman Foundation. The award enables Canadian and International artists to use the studio at PIX FILM and production resources from LIFT in order to make a new artist project. Andreas will use the award to work on a multimedia nighttime and sound portrait of the industrial and residential environs that stretch between LIFT and the Junction Triangle. Andreas will join us through the month of November.

Andreas Wutz is a conceptual media artist living in Munich and Bilbao. Specializing in 16mm film, his recent works included a photo project in Albacete, Spain, and a long-term research in Zimbabwe resulting in a solo exhibition at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe. His short films, cinepoems which use experimental and documentary strategies, are equally interested in the visual world as in the invisual and the world of sound, and are driven by a deep interest in social-political themes as well as in historical references. He has made films in Spain, the Czech Republic, Zimbabwe and of the Le Mans speedway. More detailed information at www.andreaswutz.net

While he is in residence, Andreas will be teaching a workshop called, The Self and the Camera, which starts from the analysis of selfies, self-portraits and other reference material to inspire participants to develop and produce their own projects about the interrelation of the self and the camera. He will also be presenting a program Nightwalk: The Films of Andreas Wutz on Wednesday, November 8 and a short exhibition of his work that runs from November 29 to December 3, 2017.
