Erin Weisgerber is a Montreal-based filmmaker originally from Edmonton, Alberta.
Photo-chemical filmmaking is at the core of Erin's practice. She produces poetic single-channel films that hover between figuration and abstraction employing techniques such as in-camera manipulations, hand-processing, and re-photography. More recently she has begun working with film-based installation and performance, incorporating her interests in music, sound art, and electronics. She is excited by the idea of artists' cinema as a scavenger art feeding off the refuse of the film industry. She is equally inspired by Montreal's DIY, underground arts movements and the emergence of an international network of artist-run film labs.
Along with creating her own works, Erin contributes to documentary and narrative films as a cinematographer.
Erin is a member of the Double Negative Collective, a group of moving-image artists dedicated to the creation and exhibition of experimental and avant-garde cinema and who maintain an artist-run film lab. Her films have played in Canada, France, Italy, Britain, the United States, Iceland and Lebanon.
