THOUSANDSUNS CINEMA animates aspects of Media City Film Festival’s long-storied program history online. Featuring selections from hundreds of artists showcased by MCFF over its twenty-five year history, THOUSANDSUNS presents short and feature-length films, previous MCFF commissions, fellowship screenings, retrospectives, and other cinematic endeavours connected with our activities since 1994. Moving image artworks exhibited in THOUSANDSUNS CINEMA will screen for a limited time. Conceived as a working space, THOUSANDSUNS will also function as an ever-growing online index, cataloguing artists operating in avant-garde film circles internationally. As MCFF works to migrate its immense history of previously screened filmmakers online, new artists will also be invited to exhibit their work.
NAVIGATING THIS SPACE
Artists with films streaming in THOUSANDSUNS aggregate to the top of the grid space. A blinking red light indicates that films by a featured artist are currently accessible to view. Click the accompanying portrait to stream films and programs. When streaming dates have ended, biographical and other information will remain. Artists listed as “currently unavailable” have previously exhibited at MCFF. As this space grows, users will be able to preview thousands of artist profiles. Additional films will be made available on a rolling basis. Enjoy!
