Alex MacKenzie presents work from the Iris Film Collective

Filmmaker, curator, and all-round good guy Alex MacKenzie visits from the great white north, bringing along a program of work from the Iris Film Collective, a Vancouver-based group of independent artists who create, exhibit and tour film-based works—single channel, expanded, sculptural, installation—with the goal of increasing the visibility and accessibility of experimental media art. Tonight’s program will include work from Amanda Thomson, Ariel Kirk-Gushowaty, John Woods, Ryder Thomas White, Sydney Southam, Liga G, Zoe Kirk-Gushowaty, and MacKenzie himself.

PLUS: Brenda Grell‘s piece “Levitated Mass” on the video wall.

We were so happy to have Alex MacKenzie stop by the BHMC to present a program of work from Iris Film Collective.  Alex is a fantastic filmmaker and a vital cog in the Vancouver, BC film community.  Alex ran the Blinding Light, a legendary microcinema that has served as a big inspiration for the Boathouse Microcinema, so we were very happy to host him.
