Meet our team: Lisa Birke

Introducing our new jury! Canadian media artist Lisa Birke will be a part of our first ever interactive media selection committee. Mirror Mountain Film Festival is currently accepting submissions from anywhere in the world of works that allow the audience to participate directly, including VR, explorable 360° video spaces, playable videogames, film/video installations, net art and more. Lisa will lend her expertise to help us select an interactive media piece for temporary exhibition in the lounge at the next edition of our festival. Her 360° video THE LAND OF MILK AND HONEY was featured at Mirror Mountain as part of our 2021 edition. We’re excited to work with her again, and to welcome her to our team!
