First Sight is a series of screenings of experimental films geared toward young audiences (ages 5 to 17). The program is organized by la lumière collective, a Montreal-based artists’ studio, curatorial program and micro-cinema. The screenings highlight experimental, poetic, abstract, and handmade cinema – in particular, works that fall under the umbrella of art cinema, rather than films made expressly for younger viewers. Through this initiative, la lumière collective aims to make experimental film more accessible and to sensitize young audiences to a wide range of images and filmic content, contributing to the development of their critical thinking and knowledge.
Presented as part of the RIDM, the program “Une approximative légèreté” (“an approximate lightness”) will be hosted by Montreal-based filmmaker and curator Guillaume Vallée. After the screening, Vallée will run a painting-on-celluloid workshop with the audience. The films will then be digitized at La lumière collective and the resulting video will then be sent to participants.
