She was the Executive Director of the Images Festival of Independent Film and Video from 1995-1999 and currently holds the position of Executive Director at the Canadian Filmmakers’ Distribution Centre. She is a founding member of Media City and has been on numerous boards including the Images Festival, A Space, Inside Out, the Independent Media Arts Alliance and the Centre for Aboriginal Media. She is also a filmmaker and has exhibited her work internationally since 1990. Her most recent projects include a series dedicated to all the things she will never do and a 6-channel installation exploring monstrosity and self-destruction entitled ‘Why Always Instead Of Just Sometimes’.

 

New Directions in Cinema is an on-going screening series that showcases the achievements of mid-career and established film artist members of LIFT. Each of the artists featured in New Directions in Cinema bypasses the traditional narrative structures and techniques of the mainstream cinema. Despite the remarkable broad range of art practice demonstrated by the artists featured, they all share an unconventional methodology of visual and emotional experience and alternative themes.
