Francesca Tallone | Photographer | Montreal, QC
Benefiting Charity: Rebuilding the Silent Barn
Francesca Tallone is a Montreal-based photographer and curator currently working on various projects based on the thinking of various projects that she will do. These time-sensitive works will ultimately become publications, art shows, tiny gallery spaces, the development of collectives, and collaborative projects with far-away friends. She recently traveled to Kiev for the First-Annual LOMOfest in Ukraine as an exhibitor and presenter, and will have a story about her trip published in an upcoming issue of Films & Grains Magazine.
Genevieve Simms | Illustrator | Edmonton, AB
Benefiting Charity: Habitat for Humanity
Genevieve is an illustrator living in Edmonton. Shape, colour, and a figure’s relationship to its environment are some of her current areas of interest and investigation. Significant sources of inspiration include graphics and images that serve an informative purpose. Film is also very influential for Genevieve. Though most of her illustration work is in the editorial realm, poster design might be her one true illustration love.

In 1999 at the ripe age of 24, Jason began studying martial arts for the sole purpose of surviving the zombie apocalypse.
