What People Are Saying

"I've been a filmmaker for over a decade, but only recently have I begun to identify explicitly as an experimental filmmaker. It has been an affirmation beyond my wildest dreams to be programmed alongside so may brazen, dazzling, stirring and challenging films."

— Caitlyn Craggs, York University Award for Best Student Work on Screen

"Images' spirit of counter hegemonic representation, celebrating the unseen deeply moved me. This year's Images has inspired me to engage more with the current affairs of the world."

— Weibin Wang, Steam Whistle Homebrew Award

"Images Festival was my first experience at a film festival and I was deeply impressed by how intersectional and dynamic the programming was. I also met so many incredible filmmakers, critics, and researchers that have and will continue to enrich my relationship to film. "

— Jon Wang, OCADU Off Screen Award

"The festival has been very generous and supportive of my work these past few years and with the sentiment of the award and the spirit of the festival. I feel humbled and proud to be one amongst the multitude of voices given stage and space for expression, insight, and community."
