[Interview conducted by Cyrus Smith]
Matt McCormick is an artist, film-maker, photographer and musician who has produced several well received projects in recent years. His films defy genre distinctions and fashion witty, abstract observations of contemporary culture and the urban landscape. Matt's work has been exhibited in film festivals, art museums, and micro-cinemas around the globe. Some films of note include Sincerely Joe P. Bear, American Nutria, The Problem with Machines (that communicate), and the Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal. A collection of Matt's music and sound recordings titled Very Stereo was released in 2007 by Marriage Records, and his photography and installation work is represented by Elizabeth Leach Gallery. Matt is also the founder of the internationally recognized video distribution label Peripheral Produce, and is the founder and executive director of the Portland Documentary and Experimental Film Festival, Portland's premiere event for experimental, documentary, and otherwise obscure contemporary cinema.
