2019 Festival Schedule Buy Tickets Download Brochure Accessibility

Since 2002, the Grey Zone Collective (GZC) has produced the Fabulous Festival of Fringe Film in Durham, West Grey, ON. We present independent and experimental media art, showcasing Canadian and international artists to a rural audience. The annual Festival emerged out of the concerted energies and synergies of Tony Massett, Phil Hoffman and Myke Dyer. The GZC has transformed over the years, bringing Corinna Ghaznavi, Adrian Kahgee, and Debbie Ebanks Schlums. With locations in Durham, Hanover and Saugeen First Nation, the Festival acknowledges that we operate on Saugeen Ojibway Nation traditional territory.

Saugeen Takes on Film Workshops

This year, the Festival premieres three films made in the Saugeen Takes on Film (STOF) workshop - at the Hanover Drive-In Theatre on July 20th and the James Mason Memorial Culture and Recreation Centre on July 27th. By animating archival photographs, artifacts, and traditional knowledge, the filmmakers tap into their vibrant community. Each film comes from a deeply personal place, sensitively navigating past trauma, ancestral presence and overcoming challenges. Friends and families of several generations are pictured in these films and bear witness to this moment in time. The films were made with hand-processing techniques that use flowers to replace chemicals, resulting in an aesthetic that calls to mind abstract painting and mark-making, from ancient times to contemporary painting. More importantly, the flowers have the potential to carry through teachings and healing properties of these plants into the material and subject matter of the film and onto the viewer.

STOF is a result of a collaboration of the Saugeen First Nation Employment and Training Centre, Fabulous Festival of Fringe Film and the Film Farm. We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Ontario Arts Council and Archive/Counter Archive.
