Last evening at the Art Gallery of Ontario's Jackman Hall the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre (CFMDC) launched the new boxed set of Joyce Wieland's films. This was a welcome event, giving some well-deserved recognition to this multi-talented artist who died in 1998. Guest speakers who introduced the films were: Betty Ferguson, Su Rynard, Allyson Mitchell, Izabella Prska-Oldenhof and Leila Sujir.

The DVDs of Wieland films is of interest not only to film makers, but also to anyone who recognizes the importance of the contribution to Canadian art made by Joyce Wieland.

The CFMDC was gracious in having me at their table with my "Joyce Wieland: Writings and Drawings 1952-1971" to sell copies and sign them.
