James MacSwain rocks Toronto's Images Festival

Halifax animator featured filmmaker at experimental fest

Halifax animator James MacSwain, who you may recall from a retrospective at the AGNS in 2005, is the 2011 Canadian Artist Spotlight featured filmmaker at the Images Festival, running from today, March 31 to April 9 in Toronto.

Images Festival is North America's largest festival of independent and experimental media. It's showcasing six films from MacSwain's thirty-year oeuvre, including his most recent work, The Fountain Of Youth (2010).

The Canadian Artist Spotlight screening is Friday, April 1 from 9pm-10pm at Workman Arts, St Parrish Hall, 651 Dufferin Street.

In addition to his screening, MacSwain will be on a panel with Canadian video artist Steve Reinke to discuss his creative process on April 6 at the Gladstone Hotel, and conduct a master class workshop with the Toronto Animation Images Society (TAIS) on April 10. Check out the Images website for more information, anyone who happens to be in Toronto.
