IMA Green Screen Program Launches

30 August 2016

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.

The IMA acknowledges, thanks, and pays our deepest respect to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people that we work with and the Country we work on.
