San Francisco Public Education Class, Fall 2015: Lipstick & Leather: Queer Experiments in Film and History
Malic is a queercore artist working in 16mm film and lo-fi video. Tracing political and emotional implications of estrangement, Malic's films traverse tensions between preciousness and abjection within the discarded and the overlooked.
Malic is the recipient of the 2014 GOLDIE Award in Film, presented by the SF Bay Guardian. The Museum of Transgender History and Art named him as one of their 2013 Artists of the Year. Malic's film "Gold Moon, Sharp Arrow" won Best Experimental Film at the 2012 Northwest Filmmakers' Festival in Portland, Oregon.
Malic's films have screened widely, including in the San Francisco Cinematheque's Crossroads Film Festival, the T.I.E. Cinema Exposition in Montreal and Milwaukee, the Onion City Experimental Film & Video Festival in Chicago, and the MIX NYC Queer Experimental Film Festival.
Malic holds an MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago and an MA in History and Theory of Contemporary Art from the San Francisco Art Institute. He currently lectures at the California College of the Arts and teaches in the Public Education Department at the San Francisco Art Institute.
