DOUBLE BILL: New Vancouver Works & New Toronto Works, two programs that feature recent shorts by emerging and established media artists working in the two respective cities.
Then, on Saturday October 17th, at 12pm PT/3pm ET, tune in for a cross-Canada discussion featuring artists in both programs, moderated by Video Out and Pleasure Dome. This talk will be framed around making and presenting work in the time of the pandemic, as well as the age-old question of East Coast and West Coast sensibilities.

The question of what beauty is and how it can be defined is slippery and multi-faceted. The experience of pleasure in the visual and other senses is something most people find nourishing and even transformative. But under white-supremacist patriarchal capitalism certain bodies are designated as more or less valuable, particularly for feminized bodies this is often in terms of whether they are deemed beautiful or ugly by the dominant culture. This collection of films explores desire, fat liberation, what it means to be ‘feminine’, and how racism intersects with the beauty myth.
