By Matthew Rankin

Matthew Rankin studied Québec history at McGill University and Université Laval before burrowing into the artistic underclass of his native Winnipeg to become a maker of art films. Working in video and photo-chemical hybrids of documentary, experimental drama and animated abstraction, Matthew’s films have been the object of both international acclaim and outraged corporate attack. An alumnus of the Sundance Film Festival, Matthew was a 2013 artist-in-residence at the McDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire, and is the first Winnipegger in film history to be nominated for Québec’s coveted Jutra award. Matthew works in French, English and, increasingly, Esperanto.
