Lindsay McIntyre is a film artist of Inuk/settler Scottish descent who works primarily with analog film and experimental, handmade, and documentary techniques.
Interested simultaneously in the apparatus of cinema, portraiture, representation, and personal histories (with strong links to Canada’s North), Lindsay specialises in process-based film techniques and has contributed a significant body of knowledge to celluloid-based practices around the world (e.g. the practice of silver gelatin emulsion making and coating for motion picture film).
A recipient of the REVEAL Indigenous Art Award from the Hnatyshyn Foundation, Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton Award for Excellence in Media Arts from the Canada Council for the Arts, and many others, Lindsay’s films have been shown at venues worldwide including Ann Arbor, Anthology Film Archives, Mono No Aware, Rotterdam, l’Alternativa, WNDX, Edinburgh International, and imagineNATIVE. Lindsay is Assistant Professor of Film and Screen Arts at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.
