Free event! All welcome!
The Toronto-based F4A collective facilitates the Site + Cycle project, a residency that combines analogue filmmaking instruction with teachings about site specificity at Artscape Gibraltar Point on the Toronto Islands and at Anima Casa Rural in Mexico. Participants have produced films that explore the regions’ histories, topographies, and vegetation, and shared knowledge of organic plant- based film processes.
Zoë Heyn-Jones is a researcher-artist and cultural worker who grew up on Saugeen Ojibway land in Ontario (Canada) and on Tz’utujil/Kaqchikel Maya land in Guatemala. Zoë holds a PhD in Visual Arts from York University and a graduate diploma in Latin American Studies from CERLAC (the Centre for Research on Latin America and the Caribbean, York University). Zoë is the co-founder of the F4A (Film for Artists) collective and F4A’s Site + Cycle residency project that combines analogue filmmaking instruction with teachings about site specificity and plant-based image making. She lives and works in Mexico City and Tkaranto/Toronto.
Terra Long is a filmmaker, editor and educator. Her short experimental works playfully engage with the materiality of celluloid as a means to navigate constructed landscapes, deep time and cultural histories unearthing the spaces between the real and the imagined. She is part of the Independent Imaging Retreat (The Film Farm) founded by Phil Hoffman and part of the F4A (Film for Artists) collective founded by Zoë Heyn-Jones and Eva Kolcze. Her work has been shown in festivals, micro cinemas and galleries around the world.
Eva Kolcze is a Toronto-based artist who creates films and installations that investigate themes of landscape, architecture and the body. Her work has screened at venues and festivals including the National Gallery of Canada, Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (MAC), MOCA Toronto, the Gardiner Museum, Nuit Blanche, Cinémathèque québécoise, Birch Contemporary and the Images Festival.
TJ Ediger is a filmmaker and artist living in rural Ontario. His work focuses on handmade objects, broken technology, and stuff on the internet. He has exhibited work in galleries, festivals, and residencies across North America and has worked as a technician for the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto, The University of Toronto Art Gallery, and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
