MONOGRAPH is an occasional screening series based in Calgary, Alberta. Each MONOGRAPH program features the work of a single artist or filmmaker, with a focus on avant-garde and expanded cinema, both contemporary and historical. As Calgary’s only presenter dedicated to experimental media, the series aims to elevate the local cinematic community by exposing audiences to significant artists and works that would not otherwise find a venue. MONOGRAPH recognizes that art is work and is committed to paying artist fees for all programs and admission is always pay what you can.

MONOGRAPH is located in the Treaty 7 region which constitutes most of the southern portion of the province of Alberta. The potential of the Canadian multicultural future is intimately bound up in overcoming the colonial past. It is also important to recognize that every newcomer, whether immigrant or refugee, is a settler and their culture and histories must necessarily become a part of the multicultural fabric of region. This is, in essence, the same project: decolonization. Rather than just a land acknowledgement, we offer this invitation to new understandings of the connection between land and people and history, and the politics that can give those connections meaning. We acknowledge that the people of the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), as well as the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations) and the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III, lived here before and keep living here now, as we all live here and keep living here.
