Amateurs Club with Daniel Cockburn

27 February, 2018, 6:45 pm

Daniel Cockburn is a Canadian filmmaker and moving-image artist whose work deals in language, rhythm, and thought experiments. Cockburn’s shorts have been the subject of an internationally touring retrospective, his feature film script The Engineers received the TIFF Telefilm Canada Pitch This! prize, and his feature You Are Here (2010) played Locarno, Toronto, Rotterdam, and 40+ other festivals. Called “a major discovery” by the director of the Locarno Film Festival, You Are Here won the Jay Scott Award from the Toronto Film Critics Association and the top prize at the European Media Art Festival, for “trend-setting media art”.

He is currently based in London, where he recently was an Associate Artist in Residence at Acme Studios, in conjunction with the inaugural Fellowship in Film Practice from Queen Mary University of London. During this residency period he researched the extension of lecture-performance practice into an expanded-cinema format that involves multiple projections and live video feeds.
