Small Screen: Perspectives – A Video Art Screening presented by this town is small

Friday, August 26 at City Cinema. Doors at 8pm, Screening at 8:30pm.

This town is small is pleased to present Small Screen: Perspectives, a screening of experimental short videos by Epekwitk/PEI-based artists that were selected from an open call for submissions. this town is small values experimentation and this screening features finished works, works in progress, and explorations, inviting artists to engage with new techniques and ideas.

The videos respond to the theme “Perspectives” through the following prompt:Perspective is shaped by the senses and experiences; it’s how we situate ourselves in reference to our surroundings. Perspective can form illusions – it can turn two dimensions into three in perspective drawing, a trick of the eye that alters our perception. Perspective can shift, glitch, and distort. Perspective can be a viewpoint: a birds eye view, a fisheye lens, a closeup. Perspective can be shaped by identity: the relationships, culture, and history that contribute to how we experience the world.” 

This screening is presented in partnership with Art in the Open, and supported by the PEI Culture Action Plan through Innovation PEI.

Admission is by donation – registration available through City Cinema (coming soon)
