To celebrate 25 years of Images programming, we’re looking back to the last weekend of June 1988. For four nights, the festival took over the Factory theatre and presented four programs with 51 films and videos by artists from across Canada. To help explore the origins of the Images Festival, we’ve invited founding board members and programmers to select and talk about the work from the first festival that had the most impact for them. Cameron Bailey chose Last Days of Contrition by Ricard Kerr, Annette Mangaard picked Orientation Express by Frances Leeming and Ross Turnbull selected Sirensong by Jan Peacock.
