Screening of 8 & 16mm films by JimMacSwain. Reception to follow!
Not a single digital film to be included! Through his signature blend of collage-driven visuals and caustic commentary on everything from Nova Scotia Tourism to the AIDS crisis, JimMacSwain has been enamouring audiences and making impacts on both the artist-run and queer communities that he has been a part of since the 1970s. He has been celebrated through retrospectives at Toronto's Images Festival as well as Halifax's Centre for Art Tapes, and he recently won Nova Scotia's prestigious Portia White Prize, which recognizes long-term excellence in the arts.
Supernova is a fundraiser in support of the documentary Celestial Queer: The Life, Work and Wonder of JimMacSwain (Directed by Eryn Foster and Sue Johnson). More information about this film and how to support it can be found here: igg.me/at/celestialqueer.
