For 22 years the Centre for Art Tapes has been helping the creative and curious bring their brainstorms to life and experiment in a new medium. At this year's screening, Alison Creba and eight other scholarship recipients will share their hard work in the form of documentary, animation, experimental video and online interactive art. Creba was turned onto the program after she submitted her first short to the Halifax Independent Film Festival on a bit of a whim. "What I find myself most interested in is the relationship between the built environment and the people who live in it, and how we are reciprocally shaped by those things." With the support of CFAT she dug deeper at this idea, exploring both the structural and social aspects of a place for her second short Being Here. Advance tickets for this incredible night are available at Eyelevel Gallery (2159 Gottingen Street) and CFAT (suite 207, 5600 Sackville Street).
