Malena SZLAM

new filmmaker


Nationality: chilean

Born and raised in Chile, Malena Szlam is an artist-filmmaker based in Montréal. Working at the intersection of cinema, installation, and performance, her practice explores the relationship between the natural world, perception, and intuitive process. The poetics developed through her time-based works and in-camera edited films engage the material and affective dimensions of analogue film practice. She is a member of Double Negative, an artist collective dedicated to the production and exhibition of experimental cinema.

Szlam's work has been exhibited in numerous festivals and museums, including the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the Edinburgh International Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival, the New York Film Festival, the Hong Kong Film Festival, and the Buenos Aires Museum of Modern Art. Szlam is recipient of the LIFT - Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto's Roberto Ariganello Artist Residency Award 2018.
