CFC Media Lab Welcomes International Guest Director

Last week we had the absolute pleasure of introducing International Guest Director, Dawid Marcinkowski (Director/Screenwriter/Editor/Designer), to our current Residents of the TELUS Interactive Art & Entertainment Program*.

What began with screenings of his online interactive music videos Smolik Attitude ( and Someday on the Misty Island ( as well as his interactive film Sufferosa ( at TIFF Bell Lightbox, ended with a reveal of his process as an interactive filmmaker during the post-screening Q&A with our Residents and CFC Media Lab Guest Faculty member, Todd Denis, Founder/Editor of

Sufferrosa is one of the biggest interactive web-based movies ever made (110 scenes, 3 alternative endings, and 20 different locations!) The film is a satire of cult, beauty and youth in the present-day world.

Do you remember the film ‘Logan’s Run’ (1976), where everybody who is older than 30 gets exterminated? Probably our generation is not endangered by such experiments. But there is a chance that, in 40 years time we will all have transformed into frustrated woopies (Well-Off Older People) who spend their life savings on plastic surgery. And when it happens that the scalpel is not enough, we will probably head directly to the clinic of Carlos von Braun. As Mae West once said “You are never too old to become younger”…
