After Horizons was an evening of short films presented by SAW Video in partnership with Cinema Politica featuring works by two SAW Video members: Pixie Cram’s premiere of her new short film ‘Pragmatopia,’ and Matthieu Hallé‘s film experiment ‘Apartment No. 2.’ Also joining them was Andrés Salas, whose film ‘We Might Have Been Heroes’ was produced through Cinema Politica’s recent commissioning program The Next 150: Documentary Futurism.
These varied works examined contemporary concerns through a dystopic lens, each navigating the terrain of a world on the other side of collapse. Here are a few clips from the discussion moderated by Zoë Mallett that followed the screenings at Knot project space on November 30, 2018.
Our mission is to recognize, promote and celebrate the art of cinema by showcasing Canadian films and filmmakers. We are grounded in the belief that Canadian film and filmmakers are distinctive and vital to our country’s culture and the development of the local economy.
To that end we have launched OCanFilmFest Presents, a series of free short film screenings throughout the year in the lead-up to our main festival screenings in November.
To maximize access we would like to keep admissions to these screenings free. As a result, we are seeking collaborators who have access to venues (conference rooms, auditoriums, coffee shops, pubs, for example) that can be used to host these screenings throughout the city. Venues with AV setups would be a bonus. If you have a venue and you would like to collaborate with us on a screening, please contact us.
