Festival starts in


Tender memories of a first gay embrace, of shock and exhilaration-and disavowal-animated against the waves of a deep blue lake.

Director's Biography:

Wrik Mead has accumulated a unique body of more than forty animated miniature narratives: queer fantasies, parables, dreams, and even documentaries. His films are psycho-dramatic by inclination, first person narratives of desire and accommodation. They're a mix of painstaking animation, fairy-tale allegory and queer-identity.

In 2013, he launched his first UK solo show, an installation titled Draw the Line, at PayneShurvell Gallery in London. His most recent films, Outcognito and Broken Relationship, have won awards at the 57th Ann Arbor Film Festival and the 40th Black Maria Film Festival.

In 2005, Wrik received his MA Fine Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London. He currently lives in Toronto and teaches in the Experimental Animation Department at OCAD University.
