In Visible Colours Remediated 2022
Friday, September 23, 2022 to Saturday, September 24, 2022

Originally held in Vancouver from November 15th-19th, 1989, the ground-breaking event, In Visible Colours: An International Women of Colour and Third World Women Film/Video Festival and Symposium was co-founded by Zainub Verjee and Lorraine Chan in partnership with Women in Focus and National Film Board. With over 100 films and videos from 28 countries, In Visible Colours emerged amid socio-political upheaval of the late 1970s and 1980s that foregrounded race and gender and the politics of cultural difference.

Thirty years later, we bring together some of the original participants of IVC, alongside students, researchers, curators and contemporary producers. The event — organized in collaboration with VIVO Media Arts Centre, the Archive/Counter Archive project, and the Vulnerable Media Lab (Queen's University) — is planned as an inter-generational, multi-sited gathering.

Keynote Speaker: Zainub Verjee.

Participants include: Midi Onodera, Ann Marie Fleming, Sofia Jamal, Karin Lee, Yasmin Jiwani, Amber Berson, Karen Knights, Jade Courchesne, Ana Valine, Gabriela Aceves Sepúlveda

With films by Ann Marie Fleming, Carol Geddes, Sylvia Hamilton, Mona Hatoum, Midi Onodera, Claire Prieto, Pratibha Parmar, Lotty Rosenfeld
