Contemporary Moving Image Festival

Photophobia is the 10th annual festival of short-format contemporary media, film, video and moving image hosted in partnership between the Art Gallery of Hamilton and Hamilton Artists Inc. Established in 1999, Photophobia was Hamilton’s first film and video festival dedicated to the development of experimental time-based media at a time when there were no such platforms in the Hamilton community. After eight years, the Art Gallery of Hamilton and Hamilton Artists Inc. are once again partnering to showcase contemporary practitioners who test the boundaries of the medium. Not confined by restrictions or themes, Photophobia is a free, two-part screening series presented under the cover of night. The first screening of Photophobia 10 will be presented Saturday June 4, at 9:30 pm in Hamilton Artists Inc.’s ArcelorMittal Dofasco Courtyard (155 James St. N., Hamilton, ON). The second screening will be presented June 23, at 9:30 pm in the Art Gallery of Hamilton’s Irving Zucker Sculpture Garden (123 King St. W., Hamilton, ON).
