Madi Piller is a filmmaker, animator, programmer and independent curator currently living and working in Toronto, Canada. Her abstract, nonrepresentational and poetic images are drawn from film explorations in Super 8, 16mm and 35mm, as well as photography and video. The resulting imagery is strongly influenced by diverse animation techniques and styles. Madi’s films have been screened at film festivals, alternative spaces and contemporary art venues nationally and internationally including TIFF Wavelengths, the Festival du Cinema Jeune, Paris, France, Bienal de La Imagen Movimiento, Buenos Aires, Argentina and the Melbourne Animation Festival, Melbourne, Australia. Her work has been produced with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council, and the Toronto Arts Council. She is a recipient of the Chalmers Arts Fellowship.
International residencies include Museum Quartier21 in Vienna, Austria, the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture in Yukon, NWT and the Independent Imaging Retreat in Durham, Ontario.
