On Feb 28 The Glasgow Film Festival presents two programmes addressing the work and legacy of Joanna Margaret Paul; Through a Different Lens, our 2015 survey of her film work curated by Peter Todd, and People and Places, a one-off event combining Paul's work with that of Scottish film-maker/poet Margaret Tait. The latter event includes readings of poetry by both artists and discussion of their work with artist Kate Davis and Peter Todd. Thanks to LUX Scotland and Peter for their work on this project.
In January CIRCUIT was present at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, screening works by Ana Iti, Lissa Mitchell, Gavin Hipkins, Alexandre Larose. CIRCUIT Director Mark Williams moderated a panel discussion addressing issues surrounding the moving image in an age of boundless reproduction, with presenter Dr. Erika Balsom (Kings College, UK) and panellists Hanna Maria Anttila (AV-arkki, Finaland), Andrea Lissoni (Tate Modern / VDrome, UK) and Aura Satz (Artist, UK).
