COVID-19 Policy

Images Festival is committed to providing an accessible festival and continues to work to reduce barriers to participation at our events. This year, we are implementing a COVID-19 policy to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission for all, and to prioritize the participation of people who are disability-identified, immunocompromised, or part of an otherwise vulnerable group.

The following guidelines will be in place: Self-Assessment: We ask that staff and participants screen themselves for COVID-19 before visiting the exhibition.

This solo exhibition opens to the public on Tuesday, May 30, 2023 and continues until Saturday, June 24, 2023 at Le Labo, Suite 277, 401 Richmond St., Toronto.


Just Below My Loves / En Bas Mes Amours features three recent short films by the director, Tous les jours de mai (2023), Chanson pour le Nouveau Monde (2021), Une fortresse (2018). Originally shot on analogue film then digitized, the fictionalized narratives take us on a journey through sound and moving image drawing connections between land, loss and family in the aftermath of three separate tragic events.


An accompanying interview written in both French and English will be available in gallery and online following the exhibition.


Join us for a French language virtual artist talk on June 8, 2023. Details can be found here.
