Covid Collections premiered during SkirtsAfire 2021 and was chosen to screen at the 35th Edmonton International Film Festival, in October 2021. For further viewing inquiries, please contact us.

So many stories in this time of stillness, of regeneration, of loss, of rewiring, of slowing down, of the unknown. Each of us has our circle of friends, family and colleagues that we move through. We understand their stories, live through their pain and joy. Covid Collections wants to crack that open and bring new experiences to light; the people we don’t know or understand. It’s a tribute to the people we encounter daily behind their masks and in their own spaces. Our goal is to document this human experience that takes so many forms depending on who you are, where you come from and the privilege you may or may not have access to. Covid Collections is dedicated to the lives of those we’ve lost during this time of upheaval.
