As a kick-off event for Projections 2019, Beatrice Gibson will present two short portrait films, one of CA Conrad and one of Eileen Myles, both of whom were subjects of her recent film I Hope I’m Loud When I’m Dead, presented in Projections in 2018. These films are part of a larger project which includes her latest film Two Sisters Who Are Not Sisters (2019) which will have its US premiere at the festival on October 4th in Shorts Program 3: Signs of Life.

Gibson is currently one of six artists shortlisted for the Jarman Award for Artist’ Film and Video. Her latest film premiered at Quinzaine, (Director’s Fortnight), Cannes Film Festival 2019.

Projections presents an international selection of film and video work that expands upon our notions of what the moving image can do and be. Drawing on a broad range of innovative modes and techniques, including experimental narratives, avant-garde poetics, crossovers into documentary realms, and contemporary art practices, Projections brings together a diverse offering of short, medium, and feature-length work by some of today’s most essential and groundbreaking filmmakers and artists. Curated by Dennis Lim and Aily Nash.
