Fwd: Images Festival - Daily Dispatch #5 - April 16, 2012

Images 2012: Daily Dispatch for April 16: Day 5!

Images' successful opening weekend wrapped up with a packed Sunday full of events at the festival. Curious festival-goers boarded a Magic Bus bound for bucolic Oakville, where they witnessed the opening reception of Keren Cytter's career-survey exhibition at both locations of the Oakville Galleries. The bus returned in time for our annual S for Student screening at Jackman Hall, which featured some impressive work by young filmmakers. This preceded a fine evening's worth of film programming which culminated in a packed house for Ben Rivers' 35mm Cinemascope feature, Two Years at Sea.

Scheduling Update:

Kerry Tribe artist talk
April 18, 2012 7PM
The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery

Unfortunately, the live performance of Kerry Tribe's work Critical Mass is cancelled. Tribe will be giving a talk about her practice, specifically the work in the exhibition Speak, Memory and will present the compelling video documentation of Critical Mass.
Closing Night Gala with Yo La Tengo:
A very limited number will be available at the venue box office, which opens at 6PM the day of the show.

Scheduling Corrections 

The following times were listed incorrectly in the festival catalogue:

• Tomorrow night's shorts program "A Letter to the Living" will be screening at 7PM at Jackman Hall, NOT 9PM as listed.

• Saturday's Awards Ceremony will take place at 6PM at Jackman Hall, NOT 8PM as listed.
