A lyrical filmmaker as well as a sound and visual artist, Robert Todd continually produces short works that resist categorization. His visually stunning body of work, which comes from a deeply personal place, takes a variety of poetic approaches to looking at the personal, political, and social ways in which we choose to live. In the past twenty years he has produced a large body of short-to-medium format films that have been exhibited internationally at a wide variety of venues and festivals including the Media City Festival, San Francisco International Film Festival, Rotterdam International Film Festival, New York Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Le Rencontres Internationale, Curtas Vilo do Conde, Indie Lisboa, Festival du Nouveau Cinema in Montreal, Cinématheque Ontario, the Harvard Film Archive, Pacific Film Archive, the Paris Biennial, Slamdance Film Festival, and others. His films have won numerous festival prizes, grants, and artist’s awards. Currently a professor at Emerson College, he has been exhibiting paintings and films while teaching and editing in the Boston area since 1985.

“Drawing from the resultant archive of near-constant filming, Robert Todd assembles his own footage into temporal moods which then fracture and multiply through careful editing. Todd’s extensive body of work comprises a library of emotions and observations and reveals a life dedicated to careful looking.” –Rachael Rakes
