Lindsay McIntyre is an award-winning film artist based in Vancouver, BC who works with 16mm film using experimental, handmade and documentary techniques, one of very few artists actively working in handmade emulsions today. McIntyre’s intimate and meditative short films focus on themes of portraiture, place, form and personal histories with strong links to Canada’s North. In 2013 McIntyre was the recipient of the Canada Council’s Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton Award for Excellence in Media Arts, given for outstanding artistic achievement by a Canadian mid-career artist. In 2019 she was featured on the cover the Inuit Art Quarterly's summer issue on "Film" and in an accompanying feature story, "Between Making and Telling" by author Taqralik Partridge. Her award-winning films have been shown worldwide and are included in the permanent collections of the Art Gallery of Guelph in Ontario and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Collection.View Long Biography and Citations
