SAVAC’s annual experimental film & video program, Monitor, has carved out a unique place in Canada over the last decade. It has held a steady engagement with an international community of artists, curators and critics and has initiated and extended dialogues around the shifting nature of South Asian politics, economies and landscape through film and video.
Partnering with SAVAC, Vtape hosts the Monitor Mediatheque where the previous 9 editions of the annual event can be viewed on demand. This project coincides with the newly established distribution of these programs as part of the Vtape collection.
The Monitor Mediatheque is available to view during Vtape’s office hours, Tuesday to Friday 11 to 5pm, Saturdays 12 to 4pm and runs concurrently to Monitor Reruns, curated by Shai Heredia, presented by Images Festival and A Space Gallery March 28 through May 3, 2014. More info available here.
Monitor 10 will premiere April 24, 2014 beginning 7pm at Jackman Hall, 317 Dundas St. West, Toronto.
