Ongoing Series

DIM Cinema

DIM Cinema is an ongoing series that presents Canadian and international moving-image art in dialogue with cinema presented by The Cinematheque. Screenings are held once a month, usually on a Wednesday.

The series was initiated in 2008 by local curator Amy Kazymerchyk to draw attention to artists and experimental filmmakers whose practices engage with the cinema as a medium, social context, formal structure, or architectural space. The name of the series is inspired by the diffused Vancouver sky, the darkness of the cinema, and a quote from James Broughton's Making Light of It (1992): “Movie images are dim reflections of the beauty and ferocity in mankind.” DIM Cinema has been curated by Michèle Smith since 2014.
