HIFF is honoured to welcome Mike Hoolboom, winner of the 2017 Governor General’s Award in Media Arts for a retrospective entitled “In this Body.” Mike Hoolboom is an image maker, author, journalist, arts advocate, and one of the most prolific and influential experimental/avant-garde filmmakers of our time. A tour de force, creating over 90 works on celluloid, tape, digitality, and with found footage. His personal, poignant, and political films resonate with our inner thoughts and reflect moments in our cultural history. “In this Body” is a collection of some of his most profound work exploring variations on the human form while challenging us to connect to what makes us human.
Join us for Mike Hoolboom's masterclass on Sunday June 11th for an extended artist talk and additional screenings of his work
