Nocturne Online Screening “New Toronto Works”

AFCOOP, in partnership with the Pleasure Dome in Toronto presents a collection of short films titled New Toronto Works. The screening will be presented online and will be free and open to the public throughout Nova Scotia for the duration of Nocturne (Oct. 12th – 17th). A Zoom Q&A hosted by local programmer and filmmaker Tori Fleming and including 3 of the featured artists will also be made available during the festival. 


Pleasure Dome’s New Toronto Works is a high voltage programme of new media artworks: a cinematic screening stitched together by a live wire. In an exhibition that combines emerging and established artists; and features works that range from glitch art to animation, essay films to archival interventions, ‘newness’ describes the conceptual and aesthetic intensity that links these ten experimental pieces.
