Analogue Resilience: A Film Labs Gathering

The Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) is excited to announce that we will be hosting a gathering of analogue film labs and filmmakers here in Toronto, Canada, taking place May 25 – 30, 2023. Our intention for this gathering is to create spaces and situations for artist-run labs, collectives, and filmmakers to share with and learn from each other through collaboration and conversation.

The theme of the gathering is Analogue Resilience. Analogue, to invoke the material qualities of the film medium, as well as an embodied way of working. Resilience, in reference to the continued vitality of this form of filmmaking; and to the community of people whom filmmaking survives through, who continue this practice in contexts and locations in which they encounter resistance.

The five days will include demonstrations and discussion sessions divided into three sections: Organizational Issues, Techniques and Technologies, and Presentation.

Registering today will entitle you to the following:
- Confirmed space in group discussion sessions
- Opportunity to share your film during open screenings
- Eligibility to sign up for workshops during the meeting
- Catered lunches for four of the gathering's days
- Option to attend Gibraltor Point on the Toronto Island (limited to capacity) must opt-in at the time of the
