Summary / KeywordsDocuments the events of a year-long project at the Western Front, focusing on new experimental film and media. Bowie provides a brief overview of the series and Cutler focuses on the series’ recurring theme of sampling. Anderlini, N. Gingras, and A. Mackenzie provide texts on the screenings they curated, on the respective topics of Postmodernism, looping, and hand-processing film. C.
