Rafael Lozano-Hemmer - Project "Voz Alta" Relational Architecture 15 "Voz Alta" (Loud Voice) is a memorial commissioned for the 40th anniversary of the student massacre in Tlatelolco, which took place on October 2nd 1968. In the piece, participants speak freely into a megaphone placed on the "Plaza de las Tres Culturas", right where the massacre took place. As the megaphone amplifies the voice, a 10kW searchlight automatically "beams" the voice as a sequence of flashes: if the voice is silent the light is off and as it gets louder so does the light's brightness.

And this evolving collection of stories reflects that reality. It's the result of artists and storytellers of all sorts utilizing new technology, to explore new forms of creation, for a new kind of Canada.

Filmmakers Collaborative FC offers low cost fiscal sponsorship to independent producers across the country. Many foundations will not issue grants to individuals but only to non-profits, so instead of starting their own 501(c)3 organization, filmmakers often align themselves with an established non-profit, allowing them to apply for a wide range of grants and offer their donors a tax deduction. FC is not simply a “pass through;” it is a member organization that accepts and administers contributions made to our members’ projects, monitors reports to ensure that grant funds are spent in accordance with funder requirements, and acts as the liaison between foundations and filmmakers. Since 1986 FC has managed more than $25 million in grants and donations for over 200 projects. Our films have been shown nationally and internationally, and have won awards at festivals and competitions around the world. Besides films and videos, we sponsor websites, apps, games, and digital projects on a range of platforms.

Hugo, Remediation, and the Cinema of Attractions, or, The Adaptation of Hugo Cabret It’s obvious that Martin Scorsese’s movie Hugo (2011) showcases its director’s great love of cinema and cinema history. Less obvious, perhaps, is the film’s love of books. Hugo adapts Brian Selznick’s bestselling children’s novel, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, which won the 2008 Caldecott Medal for best children’s illustrations. The relationship between film and novel poses an especially interesting case for students of adaptation; the book is itself fascinated by early cinema and the unusual number of its illustrations – and the extent to which illustrations help tell the story, in collaboration with the text – help make the novel seem almost cinematic, an impression reinforced by the number of stills used in the book to help bring the reader into the characters’ experiences of movie watching.
