Double Negative Collective will be screening recent work at Club Saw in Ottawa on November 5th, 2009 at 730pm.  The screening is presented by Cafe Ex and programmed by Scott Birdwise.

  • “Café Ex @ Club SAW is pleased to present a selection of films from Montreal-based filmmaking collective, Double Negative. In an age of big business financed, industry-based, capital-oriented film production, Double Negative Collective represents an innovative and much-needed alternative. Where the Industry model dominates discourse and puts a premium on instant recognition, the generation of capital, and the consolidation of power, the twelve filmmakers that comprise Double Negative participate in a democratic discussion on film/video form, aesthetics, and politics – in brief, the past, present, and (possible) future(s) of cinema. The fourteen works chosen for this exhibition represent the challenge posed by Double Negative to much of the current stagnation of film in the 21st Century. (Scott Birdwise, Programmer) “
