Brittney Appleby (she/they) is a queer interdisciplinary artist and filmmaker with a primary focus in experimental analogue film and photo techniques. Brittney works with 16mm, Super 8, 35mm photo film, Polaroid and wet plate collodion (tintype) photography. They are inspired by the materiality of analogue practices and incorporate their background in painting, drawing and printmaking into their films and photographs. Additionally, Brittney draws inspiration from nature by creating botanical cyanotypes and using plant based eco-developers to process film. Other common themes Brittney explores in their work are the body, chronic illness, femininity and memory.

Their work has been featured across Canada in WNDX Festival of the Moving Image, ACCESS Festival, and Gateway Film Festival and internationally in Hungarian Disability Film Festival in Budapest, CINEM’aMOSTr in Portugal, Silver Dusk 5 Festival in LA and most recently in Ljubljana, Slovenia for the Red Dawns 25th Annual Queer Feminist Film Festival.
