Mike Rollo
Title: Digging in the Dirt: Death and Rebirth of Analogue Film Practice

Mike Rollo's work explores alternative approaches to documentary cinema - methods which thematise communication cultures and transitional spaces through references to memory, history, religion, and autobiography. A founding member of Montreal's experimental film collective Double Negative, Mike has curated the work of prominent international and Canadian experimental filmmakers. Currently, he is a member of Independent Visions a curatorial incubator devoted to making independent and experimental media accessible to a diverse audience in Regina and the WNDX collective from Winnipeg. Mike's films have screened at prestigious festivals and galleries such as the Atlanta Film Festival (USA), Edinburgh International Film Festival, International Film Festival Oberhausen, FID Marseille, Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival (USA), International Festival of Documentary and Short Film of Bilbao, Los Angeles Film Forum, Museum of Modern Art (Brazil) and Rotterdam International Film Festival. His film Ghosts and Gravel Roads (2008) was honoured as one of Canada's Top Ten Shorts in 2008 by the Toronto International Film Group. Mike's latest film is Farewell Transmission (2017).
