Memory in Motion - Screening and Panel

The Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) and Archive/Counter-Archive are partnering to bring together an in-person screening and panel event to celebrate the 2022 UNESCO World Audiovisual Heritage Week running from October 27 - November 5. (link: The eight films presented as part of “Memory in Motion” celebrate and reinterpret what is possible through non-fiction storytelling in the way they use archival footage in filmmaking. Although wildly different in approach and style, they explore the generative potential of artistic engagement with documentary heritage in contemporary filmmaking practices as a means of re-imagining our relationship to audiovisual history.

Curated and organized by Cayley James and Helen Lee.

The screening will be followed by a panel moderated by Olivia Wong and featuring filmmakers Franci Duran, Jennifer Dysart and Nadine Valcin.
