ANNOUNCES MONTREAL VISITING ARTIST ERIN WEISGERBER
  

Toronto, March 23, 2016—The Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) is pleased to announce that Montreal-based filmmaker Erin Weisgerber is visiting us in Toronto to work on her new film installation at our facilities. Erin Weisgerber is a Montreal-based filmmaker hailing from the Canadian prairies. She has an educational background in philosophy and English literature and worked in community radio before turning her attention to cinema. Erin is a graduate of the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema. Her practice focuses on manipulating the physical and chemical properties of analog film towards poetic ends. She has also engaged with narrative cinema as a writer-director, and often works on many types of film as a cinematographer. Erin is a member of Montreal’s Double Negative Collective. Her films have played in Canada, France, the United States, Britain, and Lebanon.

 

Erin will be in town through April, working on her film installation, Apollo, which uses colour separation to explore time and the cinematic apparatus with the aim of creating a final installation that is a simple homage to the history of colour film, from early experimenters like James Clerk Maxwell to the three-strip colour process of the classic Kodak photochemical development.
 
Her visit is supported by the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ) through their Quebec-Ontario Artist in Residence Program.
