Touring Program in Vancouver

Join us at Cineworks in Vancouver for a free screening of nine new Films on Super 8 and 16mm Film from the 24th annual $100 Film Festival. Presented by Cineworks and Iris Film Collective in partnership with CSIF


We Had The Experience But Missed The Meaning

Laida Lertxundi | 2014 | USA | 16mm | 7min 
Between Los Angeles and San Diego, California, a moment in a story by Bioy Casares finds a man who prefers driving to making love to Veronica. Crossing desert and sea, screen and page, we pass over that which cannot be said, only shown. 

In The Backyarden

Lindsay McIntyre | 2015 | Edmonton | 16mm | 5min 
An in-camera exploration of a little girl, her garden, and all that pertains.

The Peacock

Andrew Kim | 2015 | USA | 16mm | 12min
A meditation on our fantastic condition of mortality and impermanence… "The peacock painted on the window will never dance or speak. It is only the peacock that lived in the forest which used to speak, dance, and walk in a sweet manner." 

Still Feeling Blue About Colour Separation

Christine Lucy Latimer | 2015 | Toronto | Super8 | 2 min
This film rephotographs over 200 internet-sourced images of ‘Macbeth ColorChecker’ cards on to Super 8 cyanotype emulsion. Tracing the history of the colour calibration card through many lenses, the filmmaker effectively removes all colours, save one.   

Screen Test 1 (Self Portrait)

Scott Fitzpatrick | 2015 | Winnipeg | 16mm | 3min 
The filmmaker's description is simple: Screen Test 1 (Self-Portrait) was laser-printed onto recycled 16mm film in 2015.

Wayward Fronds

Fern Silva | 2014 | USA | 16mm | 13min 
Mermaids flip a tale of twin detriments, domiciles cradle morph invaders, crocodile trails swallow two-legged twigs in a fecund mash of nature's outlaws... down in the Everglades. 

Manhattan One Two Three Four

Tomonari Nishikawa | 2014 | USA | Super 8 | 3min 
A study in visual rhythm by shooting architecture with certain camera angles and movements in Manhattan, New York. All edited in-camera and hand-processed afterwards. 

Solitary Acts #4

Nazli Dincel | 2015 | USA | 16mm | 8min 
(Mature Content)
The filmmaker engages in the most personal of acts for the camera. She hears others claim her body, her habits: those in her conservative surroundings as a child. The viewer claims her as well, by watching her in this private act.  

Girls Only

Basma Alsharif | 2014 | USA | 16mm | 2min 
Girls Only is based on a seemingly senseless rhyming game set in the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens. If there is no rhyme or reason for why something happens, then maybe is there no obvious explanation for it.
