A film artist of memory and association, Philip Hoffman has long been recognized as Canada’s pre-eminent diary and landscape filmmaker. He apprenticed in Europe with Peter Greenaway in 1985 on the set of Zed and Two Noughts and made ?O,Zoo! (The Making of a Fiction Film) (1985). In 2001, the Images Festival in Toronto launched Landscape with Shipwreck: First Person Cinema and the Films of Philip Hoffman, comprising some 25 essays by academics and artists. In 2002, he received the Golden Gate Award from the San Francisco International Film Festival and the Gus Van Sant Award from the Ann Arbor Film Festival for What these ashes wanted, a diaristic meditation on loss and grief. His research into the history of the land in Southern Ontario began in 2009 with the feature-length experimental documentary, All Fall Down, a reflection on childhood, property, ecology and love. In 2014, Hoffman completed two films Slaughterhouse (based on a 2013 installation in the exhibition “Landslide: Possible Futures” at the Markham Museum in Ontario), and Aged, with both films being awarded at the Black Maria Festival in New Jersey and the Onion City Film Festival in Chicago. He is the artistic director of the Independent Imaging Retreat (Film Farm) and currently teaches film at York University. http://www.philiphoffman.ca/
