Steeven K. Sampassa is an emerging filmmaker from Ottawa, Ontario who, as of 6 years ago, began to feed his creative urge through directing and producing films including, most recently, Last Drop and Keegans Choice. As a filmmaker, he considers his work to be an ever-evolving process of artistic growth. Inspired by gothic styles and film noir concepts, his practice is driven by curiosity and creativity. It pushes him into ever-deepening inquiries on the human condition.
Progressing from poetry and short story to script, Steeven K. hopes to create a space within which the viewer is forced to re-evaluate his or her own preconceptions of the world. This filmmaker invites his viewers to set aside these attitudes and allow themselves to watch and feel first and foremost. Steeven K.’s work can be perceived as a view of society from a different angle, considering humanities true conflict with itself and with Nature.

2014 CINEFLUX SYMPOSIUM
New image and sound tools provided by digital technologies have and will continue to revolutionize the vocabulary and methodologies of the screen arts, the way screen arts are viewed and experienced, and ultimately, the society that has made cinema a primary vehicle of artistic expression for the last 100 years.
While NSCAD currently boasts considerable and accomplished screen and media arts expertise, the establishment of Cineflux has accelerated opportunities for exploring collaborative research across disciplines and faculties, bridging areas of specialization until now separate.
This years Cineflux Symposium, The Old New, welcomes speakers from around the world to discuss and share ideas within digital audio/visual media, architecture and design.
This year’s Cineflux Symposium, The Old New, is open to the general public at no charge. No registration necessary.

Khyber Arts Centre, Heritage Trust of Nova Scotia to be relocated!
This Monday, Khyber Centre for the Arts’ artistic director Dan Joyce got a notification from HRM Events & Cultural Initiatives manager Elizabeth Taylor to leave and have no further programming at the Khyber Building on 1588 Barrington Street. The reasoning being that construction on a Starfish Properties building next door was potentially disrupting asbestos in the walls of the old building (it just celebrated its 125th birthday last year) and proved a potential toxic health hazard.
Shows—like this weekend’s Upstream Music Open Waters Festival—were quickly rescheduled to different locations, and upcoming exhibits will be relocated to a new, yet-to-be-determined venue.

Like your favorite song you play over and over again and again. Josie Geunther has worked with patterns in a similar way. PLAY BACK explores the repetition, isolation, and abstraction of type as pattern. The show consists of large scale screen prints, lithographs and printed matter.
GUSH journal is a response to hyper-academic and inaccessible articles and essays about sex, pornography, erotica, sexual education and sex work, presented by The Bad Bad Book Club. The goal of GUSH is to use our role as activists to challenge the epistemological status quo and to examine how knowledge about sex is created, disseminated and learned, while resisting the exclusive and inaccessible creation of knowledge. We believe that you are the expert in your experience and we want your help to make something that is badass, critical, accessible and based on lived experience.
We hope to create a space where many different people can write about pornography, erotica, sexual education and sex work based on lived-experience. Ideally, the journal will also be a forum for academics to disseminate their work to a wider audience, and in a more accessible way than they might otherwise be able to.
One goal of the Bad Bad Book Club has always been to think about and critique how bodies, sexualities, sexes and genders are represented in pornography and erotica. We believe that creating a forum for people to tell stories about their experience with porn, erotica, sex education, sex work and sex will help push back against the essentilizing of sexuality, the co-opting of queerness, and the exoticization of the ‘other’ by the mainstream porn industry.
Once we finish it, GUSH will be available for free online and you will be able to copy and distribute for free. We will also make as many print copies as we can available for free.
