The Loop Collective celebrates its 20th anniversary with the launch of a new, limited edition monograph publication featuring essays by Kelly Egan, Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof, R. Bruce Elder, Kathryn Elder, a chart by John Porter, posters, photographs, and artist pages from current members.

The Loop Collective is a group of independent media artists formed in 1996 to develop a public platform integrating experimental film and video with other art forms. We program and produce works for presentation through exhibitions and events in both traditional and non-traditional spaces. Our mission is to explore the roots of experimental film and video by creating a dialogue with other art media. We strive to promote experimental film and video for critical engagement by cultivating relations among different artistic communities. Loop has presented gallery installations, screenings, and artist talks by renowned figures including Michael Snow, Carl Brown, Chris Welsby, Christian Lebrat, Double Negative Collective, Richard Kerr, R. Bruce Elder, Carolee Schneemann, and Jósef Robakowski. Programmes of films by Loop members have screened at venues including The National Film Board of Canada (Toronto), Cinema Parallele (Montreal), WNDX Festival of Moving Image (Winnipeg), NASCAD (Halifax), TRUCK Gallery (Calgary), Cineworks (Vancouver), Factory Media Center (Hamilton), Leeds International Film Festival (UK), and the 2010 Canadian Retrospective at EXiS Festival (Seoul).

Loop gratefully acknowledges the support of the Ontario Arts Council, Canada Council for the Arts, Innis College and the Cinema Studies Institute, University of Toronto, in providing generous assistance to make these events possible.
