Since its founding in 2005, the Camden International Film Festival (CIFF) has risen to prominence as one of the world’s most respected documentary festivals. Taking place each fall along the beautiful coast of Maine, CIFF champions innovative work that explores the boundaries of nonfiction storytelling through a carefully curated collection of films from around the world. STORYFORMS is CIFF’s showcase of interactive and immersive media, highlighting the work of innovative artists, filmmakers and journalists who are using new technologies and platforms to transform the ways nonfiction stories can be created and shared in the digital age.

Following the 2019 Camden International Film Festival in September, selections from the Storyforms exhibition will make their way to Belfast for a first ever extended run here at Waterfall Arts.

The Village Canoe presents “Confluence,” curated by Emily Cornell du Houx and Chris Battaglia. Historically where waters meet, confluence also occurs when things come together. River and sea, artist and other artist, individual and community — these meeting places and merging entities become more dynamic and are brought to life in unexpected ways in these zones of transition. “Confluence” is a site-specific, immersive show that serves as canvas as well as inspiration/artifacts from the same canvas that brought to life The Village Canoe – from Mississippi to Maine, and the entanglements therein.
