Curator David Dinnell in person!

In the last twelve years, Media City has become one of the premiere festivals for experimental film and video art in North America. Staged each February in Windsor, the fest is renowned for its smart and cosmopolitan programming (videos from the Brazilian underground follow those featured in the Venice Biennale, meditations from Japan’s avant-garde bracket the latest in Austrian techno-minimalism), savvy installations, and adventurous live film and video performances. Tonight’s program, curated by Media City Program Director David Dinnell, is a sampling of work showcased at Media City ‘06 and enticement to attend next year’s event: Man. Road. River. (2005, Marcellvs L); Bridge over the Drina (2005, Xavier Lukomsky); Market Street (2005, Tomonari Nishikawa); Chronomops (2004, Tina Frank); Object Studies (2005, Nicky Hamlyn); Made in Chinatown (2005, Jim Jennings); Mantis Tales (2005, Chu-Li Shewring); Evergreen (2005, Rob Todd). 2004-2005, various directors, Austria/Belgium/Brazil/England/Japan/Malaysia/USA, ca. 89 min, various formats.
