This Month at EPFC North: breathing room launches with artist in residence Wendel Vistan!

EPFC | September 14th, 2021

breathing room reimagines the artist residency as a fluid space for collaboration, experimentation, relaxation and community connection

We are delighted to announce our September 2021 breathing room artist in residence: Wendel Vistan 

Wendel Vistan is a Filipino-Canadian immigrant, student, and artist who resides on unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territories. She explores notions of narrative, landscape, home and displacement through film photography, painting, poetry and video. She has participated in youth art programs at Contemporary Art Gallery and Unit/Pitt. She is currently studying Sustainable Agriculture at Kwantlen Polytechnic University.

Facilitated by Iris Film Collective and EPFC North, breathing room artists are provided with some filmmaking materials and equipment, technical and creative support, and access to work/exhibition space at Moberly and/or Burrard View Fieldhouse. The residency also includes optional opportunities for artists to engage with the local community via workshops, talks, screenings and other public activities. breathing room artists are invited to share their creative discoveries at a free public in-person and/or online event on the last Thursday of their residency.

This Week at EPFC North: Fillip presents E.S.P.: Anthrozoology

EPFC | September 1st, 2021

Fillip presents E.S.P.: Anthrozoology

September 5, 2021, 7pm

Fillip–a Vancouver-based publishing organization that was formed in 2004 to expand spaces for critical discussions on contemporary art–is pleased to announce an upcoming screening as part of E.S.P., an ongoing series looking at the relationship between film and speculative modes of visuality.
Join us Sunday, September 5 at 7pm at EPFC North Moberly Fieldhouse, Vancouver, for a free outdoor screening of work by Jade Baxter, Shigeko Kubota, Alexandra Lazarowich, Brian Lye, Gail Noonan, and Weihan Zhou. Copresented in partnership with Echo Park Film Centre North. Guest curated by April Thompson.
E.S.P.: Anthrozoology continues our investigation into documentary, narrative, and formalist film, presenting a program of shorts that include animation, celluloid, and single-channel versions of video installation. This program explores what it means to witness the natural world, and, in particular, the behaviour of animals: from amphibians to pollinators, fish to foxes. Each visual exploration is overshadowed by human interaction; from our observation to our pursuit, our reverence to our dependence. The films by Baxter, Kubota, Lazarowich, Lye, Noonan, and Zhou offer experimental forms that trace these interactions, ranging from cinma vrit to visual haiku, stop-motion to spoken-word poetry and fiction, with elements of humour, existential dread, and love.
Doors” at 7pm. Entrance to this screening is free but an RSVP is requested. Light vegetarian snacks will be served before the screening at dusk.
