Bryan Konefsky

Bryan Konefsky, his spouse, and their three lovely dogs live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. There, Bryan teaches film/video history and production courses through the Media Arts Department at the University of New Mexico. Bryan is also a board member of both Basement Films (a regional film cooperative), and Closet Cinema (a screening series dedicated to promoting queer cinema). In Albuquerque Bryan creates odd, little movies and video installations that often employ a quirky sense of humor to look at issues such as identity, community and maleness. Konefsky's work has been screened/exhibited at venues such as Artcite (Windsor, Ontario), Blinding Light Cinema (Vancouver), the Long Beach Museum (LA), the AFI Film Festival (LA), LACE (LA), the Dallas Video Festival (Texas), The Ann Arbor Film Festival (Michigan), the Knitting Factory (NYC), the Kitchen (NYC), The Robert Beck Memorial Cinema (NYC), Videoex (Switzerland) and the European Media Arts Festival (Germany).. Bryan also seems to spend a fair amount of time at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Alberta, Canada... though, no one is really sure why.
