Jon Dieringer is the founder, publisher, and editor of Screen Slate. Professionally, he oversees the preservation, archiving, and physical access of moving image artwork as the Technical Director of Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI), and works as an independent film programmer.
Aside from his regular ongoing writing for Screen Slate, Dieringer has authored articles and video essays on art, film, and photography for TIME, TIME LightBox, BOMB, INCITE Journal of Experimental Media, The Village Voice, and Canyon Cinemazine. As a programmer, he has worked most prolifically at daily Brooklyn microcinema Spectacle and additionally curated programs and series at 92YTribeca, Anthology Film Archives, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, and the Museum of Arts and Design. Many of these artist-focused series have focused on correspondences between archives and obsolete or overlooked media.
As a media artist, Dieringer's video work has shown at venues including Anthology Film Archives, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Flux Factory, MoMA PS1, the Museum of Arts and Design, The Pittsburgh Three Rivers Film Festival, the Museum of Modern Art Warsaw, Salon 94, Spectacle, The Squeaky Wheel Art Center (Buffalo), and The Nightingale (Chicago).
Dieringer has been a passionate advocate of community cinema since his teens, when he co-established and programmed a still-ongoing weekly art film night at the historic landmark Palace Theater in his hometown, Canton, Ohio.
