The Galerie de l’UQAM is pleased to announce the continuation of the Videozones program tour with its participation in the Rhode Island International Film Festival(RIIFF), an important festival of independent films. For the occasion the collective La Fabrique d’expositions (Julie Bélisle, Louise Déry and Audrey Genois) and New York based curator Boshko Boskovic brought together a selection of video works by 7 Montreal artists and six artists living in Brooklyn.
«The program of video art presented by the Galerie de l’UQAM is a nice echo to the large contingent of Canadian filmmakers in competition. In addition, it was only fitting that a university art gallery like ours would work with the RISD Museum, an institution associated with the Rhode Island Shool of Design», explains Louise Déry, director of the Galerie de l’UQAM.
First introduced in the fall of 2012 as part of Montreal / Brooklyn, Videozones has now been selected in the official out of competition program of the RIIFF. For the seventeenth year, the RIFF strives to discover new voices in independent cinema through a selection of 263 films from around the world. From August 6th to the 11th, festival attendees looking for unique works will flood the city of Providence.

For this presentation at the Rhode Island International Film Festival, La Fabrique d’expositions and Boshko Boskovic have selected, in their respective cities, the work of artists rooted in their environment. Videozones is a compilation of video works by thirteen artists exploring, each in their own singular way, the formal and narrative dimensions of the moving image. During this screening, the audience will be able to enjoy works by Sophie Bélair Clément, Olivia Boudreau, Robert Boyd, Jacynthe Carrier, Michel de Broin, Pascal Grandmaison, Tatiana Istomina, Elisa Kreisinger & Marc Faletti, Frédéric Lavoie, Marko Markovic, Aude Moreau, Rosemarie Padovano and Celia Rowlson Hall.

The group currently consists of three members: Julie Bélisle, Louise Déry and Audrey Genois.
