LESLIE SUPNET+ MIKE MARYNIUK
Leslie Supnet is a moving image artist based in Winnipeg, MB. Leslie utilizes animation, found media, lo-fi and experimental practices to create psychological narratives about loss and change, as well as abstracted visions of a desired future. Her work has shown internationally at film festivals, galleries and microcinemas including TIFF (Short Cuts Canada), International Film Festival Rotterdam, Melbourne International Animation Festival, Experimenta India, International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, WNDX, Edge of Frame/Animate Projects, and many others. She has been commissioned by Reel Asian, Pleasure Dome / Art Spin, the8fest, Cineworks, and Film Pop! (Pop Montreal).
Mike Maryniuk was born in Winnipeg, but raised in the rural back country of Manitoba. A completely self-taught film virtuoso, Maryniuk’s film world is an inventive hybrid of Jim Henson, Norman McLaren and Stan Brakhage. Maryniuk’s films are a visual stew of hand-made ingredients and are full of home cooked wonderfulness.
