Expanding Cinema: Expo 67 Reconstructions and Other Finds
Programmed by Janine Marchessault for the in/future festival.

The CinemaExpo67 Research Group has been working over many years to excavate and digitally reconstruct the multi-screen films that played at Montreal’s Expo 67.

Part of the in/future Festival of Art & Music at Ontario Place (Toronto), we’ll be presenting some of the celebrated films over three programs on Friday, September 23 and Saturday, September 24.

Imax was imagined by filmmakers like Graeme Ferguson and Roman Kroitor, the inventors of Imax, whose films we are screening along with some of Ontario Place’s Imax Collection produced throughout the 1970s.

The programs celebrate Canada’s cinematic heritage, as well as features new and experimental works by contemporary media artists inspired by the original event will be screened. Animation, found and decayed footage, and multi-screen performance brings the event into the 21st century.
