I should add to this notice that Jeff Carter is one of Vancouver's
unsung, best-kept film secrets.

A screening of short films from local national and international
media artists whose works have been manipulated using an optical

Cineworks Independent Filmmakers Society is excited to present
Optical Allusions, a program of media-art works made using optical
printers. A nearly gone technology, optical printers once dominated
the field of special effects in film, yielding such classic examples
as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Star Wars. Today, outdone by digital
technologies in the mainstream, optical printers have been embraced
by experimental and expanded cinema filmmakers. Allowing filmmakers
to re-photograph and re-work their initial film prints, optical
printers grant a staggering array of manipulation to moving images.
This screening will explore the relationship between our imaginations
and the “real” world, highlighting the discordant spaces
consciousness often occupies.

This screening will present a number of works from local, national
and international media artists whose film work has been manipulated
using optical printers.

Featured artists include Cecilia Araneda, Dan Baker, Christina
Battle, Jon Behrens, c. j. brabant, K. L. Burdette, Jeff Carter,
Amanda Dawn Christie, Michael Crochetiere, Zoran Dragelj, Chris
Kennedy, John Kneller, Jodie Mack, Matthias Mueller and Rebecca
