About Screen Slate

Screen Slate is a resource for daily listings and editorial commentary on New York City moving image culture. It encompasses repertory, independent, microcinema and gallery screenings and exhibitions related to film, video and electronic media. It aims to raise awareness and accessibility of moving image culture, stimulate exchange between the film and art worlds, and illuminate new creative directions.

The project began late 2010, launched early February 2011, and rebooted with a reader-funded new design in mid-2016. It remains New York’s only comprehensive listing resource dedicated to the moving image in all its forms.

Screen Slate is edited and published by Jon Dieringer. For more, read an interview with him in the Brooklyn Rail.

“When I die I want to go to Screen Slate. But, like Susan Hayward, I want to live… and still get Screen Slate delivered every morning, which, amazingly, I do. It’s not only stone informative, but consoling and inspiring, and makes you think there’s hope for New York.”
Richard Hell
“Astounding… It’s really helpful and a must for New Yorkers, obviously. Your very wide definition of what counts as ‘cinema’ can only help cross-fertilize the activities of media artists of all sorts, and their audiences will follow.”
David Bordwell, co-author of Film Art
“An indelible resource for New York City cinephiles.”
Carolyn Lazard, The Brooklyn Rail, June 2015
“[Nonprofit cinemas] all are acutely aware of existing within a larger and growing ecosystem that often thrives on collaboration. … Websites like Screen Slate offer comprehensive guides.”
Dennis Lim, The New York Times, September 2011

Listings policy

Screen Slate lists repertory, experimental and single-screen limited release/one-off-screening independent films alongside gallery shows and electronic art. This is inclusive of DIY events, basement shows, interactive media art, book signings, expanded cinema, director/artist talks, and panel discussions. At this time to we do not list first-run indie films playing at more than one venue or events outside of the five boroughs except on rare case-by-case basis; nor do we list bar screenings, film-related trivia/bingo nights, student film showcases, screenings promoting special interest groups/NGOs, or rental/four-wall screenings.

If you don’t see your event, venue, or organization listed, please get in touch.

For any submissions, please provide, as applicable: Event title, Movie title, Director, Year, Runtime, Venue name, Event date, Start time, and Link. Galleries should provide hours and start/end dates for exhibitions . A live web link is mandatory. (If nothing else, a Facebook event will suffice.) Please place this information clearly in the body of an email. We do not accept PDFs, flyer image attachments, or Word .docs. Due to our extremely limited volunteer staff we do not have the ability to follow up on incomplete listings submissions, events that are outside the scope of our listings policy, or events submitted with fewer than two weeks’ notice. Finally please accept that we do, on occasion, overlook things, and accept our apologies if we are unable to include your event.
