"Defiantly independent and deliberately scandalous" --Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

"What you get for your money is not just admission to the films but admission to a subculture" --Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"The hottest and most ambitious festival on the local scene" --John Petrakis, Chicago Tribune


Leister had a piece selected for an design exhibition in Tokyo:

A New Dance Performance Piece

Leister premiered a new collaborative dance piece titled That Indistinct Edge at the Wooly Mammoth Theater in Washington DC on January 10. The piece will feature 22 minutes of new sound and video that I am creating along with dance choreographed by Jane Franklin. The dance explores the blurring of our physical space identity through digital and live performance, which is a continuation of a theme I am developing in paintings and new animation. The Wooly Mammoth is a well-known Theater in Washington DC.

Student Collaboration for a local benefit auction

Also, Leister collaborated with graduating Digital Design senior Grant Hammel in designing a skateboard for a local design auction:
