"North America s Largest Photography Festival"
2000-05-01 until 2000-05-31
CONTACT 2000
Toronto, ON, CA Canada

CONTACT 2000, one of North America’s largest photography festivals, will take place throughout Toronto for the entire month of May. The 4th annual festival, which expects 250,000 visitors, includes more than 140 photo exhibits and special events across the city.

The goal of CONTACT is to celebrate and introduce the general public to the diversity of photography while also presenting new directions. Exhibit venues include commercial and public galleries, museums, artist-run centres, community spaces, restaurants and other alternative venues.

Sponsored by Kodak, CONTACT is becoming recognized globally because of its cooperative forum to exchange dialogue and the education of photography. CONTACT 2000 highlights include:

- an opening keynote address by Kim Phuc, subject of the recently-published bio The Girl in the Picture, on May 1st at the Courthouse;

- a Toy Camera exhibit May 2nd at Club Lucky, a festival focal point (see below);

- a lecture by renowned dance photographer Lois Greenfield (May 5th);

- a panel on photojournalism (including former AP Chief Picture Editor, Hal Buell, and moderated by Senior Scholar of George Eastman House, Marianne Fulton) on May 9th;

- portfolio reviews by famed photography agent Carol LeFlufy May 15th and 16th.

Club Lucky (117 John Street, 2nd floor) will be the CONTACT Meeting Place where photographers and the public can hold informal discussions and exchange views and information. Toy (Camera) Stories, opening May 2nd will showcase photos taken with plastic cameras offering unique and refreshing visions.
