I’ve just learned that Magic for Beginners won the Overkill Award at the Images Festival in Toronto. What an honor!
This overkill award was established by the Images Festival in 2000 to
honour former Executive Director Deirdre Logue, (1996 through 1999
festivals) and is presented annually to a film, video or installation
artist whose work approaches extremes of incorrigibility through form
and/or content and challenges our notions of edgy, experimental
Some nice blogging about the festival and Magic for Beginners
