This online program features ten new works by media artists and filmmakers working across Canada and internationally, including Iran, Mexico, Egypt, Croatia, the US, and the Netherlands. With works ripe with both humor and the vagaries of frustration and grief, this screening invites audiences to reflect on the nuances of “nature,” changing environmental and social ecosystems, and the relationships between ourselves and others—both beings and materials.
Pleasure Dome is pleased to announce the 2023 iteration of our highly-anticipated annual screening series “New Toronto Works,” which will return to an in-person screening this fall for the first time since before the pandemic! Please join us in viewing ten new works made in the past year by artists and filmmakers who are based in the Greater Toronto Area. A number of the artists will be present at the screening and will take part in a post-screening Q&A.

We commissioned four local artists, writers, and filmmakers from our recent Digital Now e-book project, Renata Azevedo Moreira, Dhvani Ramanujam, Cody Rooney, and Fan Wu, to respond in creative ways to Pleasure Dome’s spring and summer 2023 in-person screenings. You can read their responses here.
Pleasure Dome welcomes submissions of experimental, time-based media work by Canadian and international artists for our 2022-2023 programming year. We have two calls for submission this year: “2023 New Toronto Works” and our debut “Reimagining the Experimental,” which replaces our open call. The deadline for submissions is April 5, 2023. For New Toronto Works, the work must have been produced after March 2022.
