2018 Festival News:


Festival trailer for Tricky Women 2018 made by Canadian artist Moïa Jobin-Paré. For her first animated short "4min15 au révélateur" Moïa won the 3-month-scholarship to live and work at Q21/MQ under the Artist in Residence Program. The images and sounds of the trailer were captured during the residency in Vienna in spring 2017.  


Both images and sounds were captured during my residency in Vienna and the visit of Magali Babin, a sound designer from Montreal, who made the sound design. The trailer was filmed with super8 and digital cameras by the Donaukanal and in my studio at Q21, each frame was printed, then scratched one by one. Moïa Jobin-Paré
