Programmed by Amy Kazymerchyk and double negative collective
" We find ourselves in the role of alchemist: we promote accidents, discoveries, failures; processes that lead into unknown landscapes; the fleeting tangibility of mystical and transformative forces; the begetting of delicate, precious objects in the dark. " double negative collective manifesto
Since its inception in 2004, the double negative collective has become a major presence in montreal’s experimental cinema scene. their unique philosophy and methodology has had an undeniable impact on the shifting landscape of moving-image art and artist collectives. the double negative collective has succeeded to operate self-financed for over five years. they have maintained their own studio of analogue filmmaking equipment and have organized experimental film screenings, performances and artist talks that continue to inspire audiences at home and abroad. this programme demonstrates the breadth and depth of the collective’s conceptual and aesthetic approaches to cinema.
