Cinenova is a non-profit womens’ film/video distributor based in London, UK. Cinenova is a source of very specific knowledge, a network and cultural community that engages directly with feminist film and video practice, and with the question of how to make this knowledge more publicly accessible. We are very pleased to present a series of events that access, activate and animate the Cinenova collection here in Toronto under the banner of Cinenova: All Hands on the Archive.
Join us twice every Saturday afternoon in February at the Feminist Art Gallery in Parkdale as local artists, activists, thinkers, and educators select work from the collection for small-group presentation, viewing and facilitated discussion.
