about the artists:

Lori Felker chose Filmmaking as her official second language in 2003-ish, bumping German into third place. Eventual fluency is important to her, so she employs many forms/formats, practices frequently with others, and tries hard not to shy away from expressing her thoughts on human behavior, participation, frustration, failure, in-eloquence and political irritants. Lori has many lives to live simultaneously. They currently live, make films/videos, teach, project, program, and compulsively collaborate in Chicago.

The work of Lori has screened at the Rotterdam International Film Festival; NYFF: Views from the Avant-Garde; VideoEx, Zurich; Ann Arbor Film Festival; Festival du Nouveau Cinema, Montreal; Curtas Vila do Conde Film Festival, Portugal; Glass Curtain Gallery, Chicago; LA Filmforum; Echo Park Film Center, LA; BAMcinemaFest, Brooklyn; Wexner Center for the Arts; MassArt Film Society; MuHKA_media, Belgium; Boston Underground Film Festival; Video Fest, Dallas; Florida Experimental Film Festival; Space Gallery, Pittsburgh.

She is/was an Illinois Arts Council Artists Grant recipient, a Wexner Center Artist in Residence, an Experimental Sound Studio Artist in Residence and a Fulbright Fellow.

Nancy Evelyn Andrews lives on the coast of Maine, where she makes films, drawings, props and objects. She works in hybrid forms combining storytelling, documentary, animation, puppetry, and research. Her characters and narratives are synthesized from various sources, including history, movies, popular educational materials and autobiography.
She has been the recipient of grants and fellowships including: the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, LEF New England Moving Image Fund, Illinois State Arts Council, The Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art (supported by the Jerome Foundation and New York State Council on the Arts), and National Endowment for the Arts.

Her work has been presented by the Museum of Modern Art, Pacific Film Archive, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Anthology Film Archives, Jerusalem Film Festival, Flaherty Seminar, Nova Cinema Bioscoop, Brussels, Belgium, and Taiwan International Animation Festival, among others.
