The Film and Philosophy Conference is the annual event for Spiral, a Toronto-based collective dedicated to exploring the intersections of film, media, and philosophy with a special interest in issues and themes of political resistance and aesthetic dissonance. Spiral is currently composed of Scott Birdwise, Tamás Nagypál, Reşat Fuat Çam, and Philippe Theophanidis. We welcome collaboration with interested parties both within and outside the Toronto area.
