Anna Scime is an internationally exhibited media artist based in Buffalo, NY. Though varied in material, style and genre, she most often experiments with moving-image-based work at the intersection of art, technology and science – addressing topics including the Anthropocene, eco-histories, and the archive. Scime studied journalism at Northeastern, and graduated summa cum laude with Bachelor’s Degrees in English and in Art from the University at Buffalo, where she also received an MFA from the Department of Media Study, and taught courses in media production and analysis. She was Squeaky Wheel's interim Executive Director from late 2015 through 2016, and continues to contribute to the cultural ecosystem in Buffalo through her work with community arts nonprofits, like the Buffalo International Film Festival. She is also Lumiflux Media’s Executive Director, and since 2013 has worked to ensure that the organization sustainably stewards a dynamic roster of media productions.
Scime's work has been exhibited in film and art festivals, galleries, and museums, including the Burchfield Penney Art Center (Buffalo), Berlin International Directors Lounge (Berlin), Centro Cultural Borges (Buenos Aires), FLORA ars+natura (Bogotá), Kuala Lumpur Experimental Film, Video & Music Festival (Kuala Lumpur), PS1 MoMA (NYC), and more.
