This Month at EPFC North: breathing room welcomes Han Pham!

EPFC | November 1st, 2021

We are very exited to have Hân Pham as our next breathing room artist in residence!

breathing room reimagines the artist residency as a fluid space for collaboration, experimentation, relaxation and community connection. Facilitated by Iris Film Collective and EPFC North, breathing room artists are provided with some filmmaking materials and equipment, technical and creative support, and access to work/exhibition space at Moberly and/or Burrard View Fieldhouse. The residency also includes optional opportunities for artists to engage with the local community via workshops, talks, screenings and other public activities. breathing room artists are invited to share their creative discoveries at a free public in-person and/or online event at the end of their residency.

Hân Phạm (b.1999) is an emerging Vietnamese documentary/ experimental filmmaker and artist from Saigon, Vietnam. Working with experimental haptic video and film, photography, and soundscape compositions, her works often thinks through the ephemerality of memory, language, and history in relation to the constantly changing and dislocated landscapes, rooting in the inbetweeness of distance as space for reflection. Hân has exhibited at Vancouver International Film Festival, DOXA Documentary Film Festival, Milwaukee Underground Film Festival, Vancouver Queer Film Festival, and Vines Arts Festival, presented her work in a public installation with Mount Pleasant Community Art Screen in 2020-2021, and participated in the VIFF Catalyst Mentorship Program.
