Still Not Over It is an extensive program of queer Canadian documentary, experimental, performance, animation, and fiction shorts spanning 70 years of moving images. Variously addressing memory, social history, and futures, these shorts use anachronism, queered retellings, hope, reminiscence, and prophesy to elicit questions on queer temporality: what is our past without our overcomings? Who were we and what did we want to be? Will I find a date for Friday night? This selection shows us bygone times and timeless aspirations from WWII-era crypto-homo desire to 1960s subtleties, 70s experimentalism, 80s essays, 90s elegies, and millennial flux. Culled from the newly launched online catalogue mediaqueer.ca—a research tool for LGBT moving image art in Canada and Québec—the program will be presented in two parts with a short discussion with artists in-between.
Presented in partnership with the Queer Media Database Canada-Québec and Video Out Distribution.
Guest programmers Jordan Arseneault, Alan Kollins and Thomas Waugh.
