DEFENSE DE FUMER Defense de Fumer is a short film shot at a real garage in Montreal in the spring of 2014 with the actual mechanic from the garage in the lead. The title of the film is a double entendre: défense de fumer, in French, means no smoking, but a similar title in English might suggest a defence of smoking. In fact, the film is a stylish defence of the militant leathersex lifestyle that used to be a central thrust of the gay movement. Short Film: Website

BLUE MOON Blue Moon is a short documentary made in close collaboration with a teen “wolf pack.” This group of young people embody their animal spirits through piecing together popular folklore, ecological thinking, and transgressive gender and identity politics. Helen Reed is an artist based in Vancouver, British Columbia. She has made work with Twin Peaks fans, lesbian separatists, high school art teacher candidates and grade six students. In each project, collaboration is a working process from which the artwork emerges. Reed favors collaborators that reflect her interest in participatory culture, affinity groups, and fantasy-based subcultures.  Short Film: Website

BLAIR SWANN I Don’t Know If It’s Real, But It’s How I Feel.  Blair Swann is a Toronto-based artist whose interests lie in intimate narratives, especially those that examine violence, the body, and difficulties of perception. His also work explores the links between such narratives and the public, from the viewer's role in valuation to the conflict of interpretation, as well as their connection to new rituals of image consumption and image-making such as those ingrained into social media.
