The Emerging Lens
film screening is back for round two. The mini film fest, designed to provide a platform for African Canadian filmmakers to showcase their work, made its popular debut last year. This year’s films focus on sharing the black experience and features work from around Nova Scotia and Toronto.
Artists presenting films at the screening include Elizabeth St Phillips
, Sylvia Hamilton
and the BB Youth Video Camp
. A variety of work will be showcased, from a documentary about racism in the fashion industry to an animated historical piece.
A film/video workshop will be held from 2-4pm on April 14 at The Black Cultural Centre (1149 Main Street, 434-6223). Films will be shown afterward from 7-9pm. Admission is free, and a reception with the directors follows afterward. Sounds like the perfect chance to rub elbows with some interesting artists.
