Phil Hoffman. Living / Filming

Imaxe: Phil Hoffman. Intro

Watching Phil Hoffman’s films, it seems that living and filming are the same thing. Hoffman has managed since the beginning of his career (he started in the seventies) to master the art of the filmed diary, making sincerity and emotion combine perfectly with form. Born in 1955 in Kitchener, Ontario, Hoffman holds a prominent place in the rich scene of Canadian experimental filmmaking, not only as a filmmaker but also as the driving force behind an educational project that has marked the lives and ways of doing of many other filmmakers since he started in 1994: Film Farm. A sort of collective “spiritual retreat” or “summer camp” for filmmakers in which personal and experimental projects are carried out in film format, and with handcrafted and ecological development techniques. info
