This exhibit runs until May 31st and will adorn the walls for receptions and parties during the 4th annual Island Media Arts Festival.
Sean’s “Levitas” is a surrealist photo series based around the visual act of levitation and the wonder and beauty of humans doing such feats in their natural environments.
Adnan’s “I Was There” is a body of work that openly documents his life. The images are a reflection of is time – the events, people and places he has (un) intentionally come across.

All IMAC Members welcome!
The evening will entail some food and beverages, some hanging-out and some watching of one another’s films. Come on down and get to know the PEI filmmaking and media arts community.

IMAC will host the first in a series of ’round-tables’ for writers to table their scripts (finished or work-in-process) for constructive but professional feedback and critique from their peers. Writers can present scripts and concepts for any kind of work as long as they bring at least six copies of the script they wish to present for their ‘table’ to review with them. Tables will be kept small to allow each group to concentrate on what they are being presented and to allow for in-depth analysis, discussion and the open sharing of opinion.
For all those who really wonder how a potential audience would react to their work this is an excellent opportunity to find out how your work impacts and what reaction it creates – for those more experienced writers trying something different, you’ll get the feedback you are looking for!
Admission is free and open to members and non-members and there will be a cash bar. See you there!
