The feminist landscape in Calgary has been shaped by many forces. As filmmakers working from a specific feminist lens there are heavy responsibilities to share and much work to be done. Today’s feminist filmmakers have inherited a legacy of triumph but also challenges. These challenges, which have defined the modern feminist movement, range from topics exploring inclusion, access, and intersectionality. Tonight’s programming celebrates the women engaging in the revolutionary act of activism to induce change through the art of storytelling. Each piece addresses by means of unique visuals, voice and perspectives concepts relating to identity, space, representation and narrative control.

Projection mapping gives the artist the possibility to create illusions of deconstruction and redefinition of physical shapes, right in front of your eyes. It is a technical process, wrapping projected virtual content around a real world object, much like a second skin of light. It is a great way to create amazement and never fails to astonish. The workshop will be a comprehensive introduction to the tools and methods to create these illusions, as well as an approach to ideas and concepts for such projects, based on an example created collectively during the classes. Learn an introduction to workflow and technical skills.
