The Globe and Mail, Nov. 5, 1984

"Video-Culture Canada ended its second annual festival, The New Media 1984, at Ontario Place with a splapdash awards ceremony for the 17 best international videos announced Saturday...Video-Cultlure ha a very long way to go before it really is an arts festival rather than a playpen to contain the infants of the corporate electronics industry."
