This pair of events at Concordia and ACAD addresses the expansive production of artists’ cinema and paracinema in contemporary Canadian, Quebecois, and Indigenous contemporary art through a series of roundtable conversations, paper presentations, and film screenings. The methodological foci of these conversations will be queer in orientation, as will be many of the case studies. The purpose is to imagine artists’ cinema and paracinema as strategies for world making and creative speculation in queer futurity, identity formation, and activism. By extension, this queering will involve questioning the disciplinary limits and limitations of the term “artists’ cinema.”

All events are free and open to the public.
