The Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers and TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary are excited to present Selected Works by the Loop Collective in celebration of the Toronto-based experimental film collective’s 20th anniversary. The works in this program combine recent films from their members with older hidden gems, generating conversations between old and new, film and video, movement and stasis, purity and hybridity, nature and technology, matter and memory.
The Loop Collective is a group of independent media artists formed in 1996 to develop a public platform integrating experimental film and video with other art forms. Over the past two decades, Loop has programmed and produced works for presentation through exhibitions and events in both traditional and non-traditional spaces. The collective's members are diverse and evolving; their practices spanning film, video, music, dance, photography, collage and textile arts. Films by Loop members have screened at venues including The National Film Board of Canada, Ex-Centris (Montreal), WNDX Festival (Winnipeg), NASCAD (Halifax), Club SAW (Ottawa), Factory Media Center (Hamilton), Leeds International Film Festival (United Kingdom), and the 2010 Canadian Retrospective at EXiS Festival, (Diagonal Film Archive, Seoul, South Korea).
