Lydia Moyer’s body of work draws alternately on her training in experimental video and documentary production, culminating in a hybrid of the two—a kind of poetic nonfiction. She is as interested in reading landscapes for insight into the values of the cultures that inhabit, protect, or otherwise exploit them. Moyer received a BFA from the New York State School of Art and Design at Alfred in 1999 and an MFA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2005, where she was a recipient of the Weiss Urban Livability Fellowship. Her work has been screened nationally and internationally in festivals and exhibitions including the Black Maria Film Festival in Jersey City, NJ, the Impakt Festival in Utrecht, the Netherlands, and the 700is Festival in Egilstaddir, Iceland, where she was awarded the film of the festival prize in 2006. She has been named a 2009-10 individual artist fellow in film and video at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, VA. She lives and works in rural Virginia.
