This program will feature 13 shorts films (all under 10 minutes!) that were showcased at the inaugural Light Matter Film Festival in November 2021. Light Matter will return with a second edition in Fall 2022. The program is representative of Light Matter’s chief aim of bringing together contemporary experimental film and media art, highlighting work that ranges from hand-painted 16mm film, found footage, glitch, image-processing, and more. Each work also stands on its own, reflecting various artistic investigations into the people, objects, and environments that we inhabit.
