CineSiege 2018: A Juried Showcase of York Film
Jan 22 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

CineSiege Eyes from the 2019 ProgramCatch a rising wave of electrifying film talent!

Now in its 16th year, CineSiege presents a collection of short films – riveting fiction, cutting-edge alternative works and provocative documentaries – selected by leading lights of Canadian film and media culture.

Screening one night only, this juried showcase features the best productions created in 2018-2019 by undergraduate students in York University’s Department of Cinema & Media Arts. The films selected for CineSiege 2018 were chosen from a shortlist, culled from 186 productions made last year.

The nominees were reviewed by five jurors: Adam Cook, Elise Cousineau, Debbie Ebanks Schlums, Peter Mohan and Myrocia Watamaniuk. The jury picked the productions to be shown at CineSiege, with “best of” awards for each genre and craft area (directing and screenwriting, cinematography, production design, and editing and sound).

The best first year film was selected by the Department’s Production Committee. The best second year films were selected by the second year students through anonymous vote.

Jurors will be in attendance at CineSiege to introduce the winning films and explain why they were selected.

Theatre@York presents Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)
Nov 16 – Nov 23 all-day

Coulorful collage featuring a Elizabethan woman on the left, a luminant sky on the right, and a glowing brain in the centre

Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) is a beloved feminist revisioning of two of Shakespeare’s most well-known plays, Othello and Romeo & Juliet. Written by Canadian playwright Ann-Marie MacDonald, the play explores the hypothetical question: what if Shakespeare’s tragedies were actually intended to be comedies? To learn the answer to this question, please join us November 16-23 in the Joseph G. Green Theatre to find out.

Dance Innovations: the near distance – pathways towards discovery
Nov 20 – Nov 22 all-day

The Department of Dance presents
Dance Innovations 2019 – the near distance – pathways towards discovery

Dance Innovations 2019 – the near distance – pathways towards discovery features the concise creations of 25 fourth year BFA choreographers performed by students engaged in all levels of York’s programs in Dance. Students and faculty involved in creation, performance, lighting design and production collaborate in the successful realization of Dance Innovations. Series A of the two series program comprises a new creation by Assistant Professor and intermedia artist Freya Björg Olafson for York’s third year Performance class. In harmony with the themes explored elsewhere in the Department’s 2019/20 events, performances and workshops – issues of identity, navigation and acknowledgment – our show title celebrates the certainty that curiosity, open ness and creative engagement lead to imminent and ongoing discovery and transformation.

Artistic Director:  Julia Sasso for 4th year choreography course
Director: Freya Björg Olafson for 3rd year Performance course
Production Manager: Jennifer Jimenez
