Some of the most rewarding and memorable experiences at Antimatter are artist talks, Q&As and informal social events with local and visiting filmmakers. As the situation this year again precludes most participants attending the festival to engage with peers and audiences, Automat presents a self-serve option. 

We coerced participating artists into making short videos that somehow “talk” about themselves and their work, whether by actually talking or otherwise. The results are as amazing as we’d hoped—spontaneous, revealing, witty and poetic insights into their lives and practices. Watch the results online at antimatter.ca.
