The artists in the Vancouver-based Iris Film Collective create, exhibit, and tour film-based works—single channel, sculptural, installation—with the goal of increasing the visibility and accessibility of experimental media art. We present nine newly commissioned works from Iris members created entirely on hand-processed, black & white, 16mm film, including works by: Ariel Kirk-Gushowaty, Zoe Kirk-Gushowaty, Alex MacKenzie, Lisa G Nielsen, Sydney Southam, Simone Smith, Amanda Thomson, Ryder White, and John Woods.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
