Faculty work featured at Toronto International Film Festival

Fine Arts faculty Dana Berman Duff's film "Catalogue" included in "WAVELENGTHS" at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Fine Arts faculty Dana Berman Duff's 16mm film Catalogue will be included in the "WAVELENGTHS" program at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

Catalogue uses black-and-white 16mm to heighten the staged romanticism of a commercial catalogue's dreamily desaturated photos of designer furniture knock-offs.

The film was reviewed in the British Film Institute's Sight and Sound magazine after it's world premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival in June (read review).

"Catalogue" will also be screened in the EXiS Experimental Film and Video Festival in Seoul South Korea, and AXW Film Festival at Anthology Film Archives in New York City.
