A discussion about the films and the time period with Keith Lock, Robert Fothergill, and others.
Take Two, an event curated by the first cohort of the Film Preservation and Collections Management students at Ryerson University, surveys the emergence of independent filmmaking in Toronto between 1965 and 1972. The time period highlights the development of many distinct voices in both the artistic and student communities, which tended to cross-pollinate and inform each other. The goal of this event is to illustrate the context and development of these voices through two programs of short films, an exhibition of film ephemera from the time period, and a panel discussion with members of the artist and student communities, including Raphael Bendahan, Betty Ferguson, Robert Fothergill, Rick Hancox, and Keith Lock.
Please join us in celebrating this unique period of Toronto’s film history.
