Our partner organization, CineMobilia, has just announced its first artist-in-residence! Throughout the rest of the month, writer and filmmaker Nada El-Omari will be working in CineMobilia's digitization lab at York University.
Stay tuned for more updates on Nada's residency as well as information about future incoming artists in residence with CineMobilia!
Nada El-Omari (she/her) is a filmmaker and writer of Palestinian and Egyptian origin based in Montreal, Quebec. She has centered her practice and research interests on the intergenerational transmissions of memories, displacement and the stories of belonging and identity through a poetic, hybrid lens. Focusing on process and fragments in text, sound and image, Nada explores different ways to self-narrate new ways to speak hybridity and self.
Her films have recently been shown at Images Festival, Arab Film & Media Institute NYC, Nuit Blanche Toronto, Les Instants Vidéos, NYU’s Orphan Films Symposium, Belfast Film Festival, Palestine Cinema Days, Visions Cairo, Toronto Palestine Film Festival and on Shasha and Tenk. Her work has also been published in Montreal Serai and qumra journal. She is currently displaying a digital project commissioned by the Art Gallery of Ontario (on view at:1-home.net) in collaboration with Sonya Mwambu. El-Omari holds a BFA in Film Production and MFA in Film from York University.
