Tate has had his work exhibited/screened internationally at film/new media festivals, symposiums, juried screenings/exhibitions, and solo gallery exhibitions/tours


“Turbulence” is a meditation on various places in the southern Prairies of Canada, places that are part of an ancient Precambrian seabed rebounding from the last ice age. This is a region that 100 years ago had a dynamic range of wildlife, plants, and wetlands supporting various ancient cultures that flourished here for millennia. Filmed on Location by Kent Tate: Eastend, Gull Lake, Reed Lake, Regina, & Prairie Dog Town (Grasslands NP) in Saskatchewan + the abandoned Canadian Tire store in Medicine Hat, Alberta
