Images Festival 2021

Images Festival is an artist-driven festival presenting independent film and media culture in dialogue with contemporary art. Created in 1987 as an alternative to the only other Toronto film festival at the time, Images has spent the last 34 years presenting works that are challenging in their form and content. Images showcases the intersection of emerging and established practices and invites open critical dialogue in the film and media arts community around the political herstories of moving-image production, distribution, exhibition, and representation. Today the festival is one of the most enduring platforms in the world for the exhibition and discourse of independent film and media art, and includes screenings, exhibitions, performances, educational initiatives, and online presentations.

For this special feature on e-flux Video & Film, Images Festival 2021 programmers Alia AymanRobert Lee, and Yasmin Nurming-Por discuss this year’s edition with e-flux’s Lukas Brasiskis, and present six picks from the festival for e-flux audiences.

With films by Rossella Biscotti, GrauDarol Olu KaeNour Ouayda, Suneil Sanzgiri, and Rina B. Tsou, streaming on e-flux Video & Film for two weeks from Saturday, May 29 through Friday, June 11, 2021.

This program is part of the series Festival Forum on e-flux Video & Film, presenting collabrations with established and emerging moving-image festivals from around the world.
