The Festival That Rocks: Toronto's Images Festival of Independent Film and Video Revels in the Truly Alternative

by Barbara Mainguy

The Independent, July 1997, pp. 18, 19

Barbara Mainguy speaks to festival director Deirdre Louge about how the Tenth annual Images Festival has risked a "fundamental shift in vision" programming risk-taking and experimental video and film that acts "like a war cry of independents." Highlights of the festival include Steve Reinke's award winning Everybody Loves Nothing and a 40 hour screening of Bruce Elder's The Book of the Dead.
