IMA Green Screen Program Launches

Following our Open Call in May and a process of selection by IMA Executive Directors Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh, and Queensland Film Festival Co-Directors Dr John Edmond and Dr Huw Walmsley-Evans, we are pleased to announce the launch of the IMA Green Screen Program. Between September and December this year a series of events will take place at the IMA, and off-site, featuring a range of moving image works and performances with a connection to Queensland.


Launching the program is Judy Watson‘s the names of places, which screens at the IMA from 10 September–8 October. This new film by Watson presents research-based mapping of Aboriginal massacre sites across the country. Join us for the opening on Saturday 10 September.


In another IMA Green Screen event, artist Caitlin Franzmann presents an off-site experimental film screening and audiovisual performance with Dale Gorfinkel and Ross Manning. This collaboration is the first stage of a larger project for the artists and will feed into the development of a video installation to be screened at the IMA in 2017.


In November we present a screening program of short films by Queensland artists in three thematic sections, featuring work by Emily Avila, Paul Bai, Sam Cranstoun, Aishla Manning, Daniel McKewen, Leena Riethmuller & Callum Galletly, and Amanda Wolf. Stay tuned for more details.
