About Screen Slate

Screen Slate is dedicated to advancing moving image culture by:

Compiling daily listings of New York City independent, repertory, experimental, and artist-focused film and video screenings and exhibitions

Commissioning and publishing original essays, cultural criticism, and interviews by a diverse group of writers, including daily featured write-ups, in-depth articles, and print projects such as books and zines

Developing and maintaining a custom online platform and daily and weekly newsletters to publish listings and commentary to thousands of website visitors and email subscribers

Presenting public programs that spotlight overlooked or marginalized works, support artists, and build community

Through Screen Slate, audiences can navigate and engage with a broad range of programming inclusive of repertory cinemas, art spaces, museums, microcinemas, cultural centers, and galleries. Furthermore, Screen Slate’s daily listings and commentary actively function as a historic record of NYC and surrounding areas’ important and often fleeting cultural, artistic, and archival moving image culture.

Screen Slate is a New York charitable corporation that is tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Since launching in February 2011, it has established itself as a leading resource for connecting audiences, artists, filmmakers, programmers, curators, and venues across the film and art worlds.

“[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
“As New York’s arthouse and repertory scene heats up, more and more cinephiles have come to rely on Screen Slate. It's an invaluable website ... easy to use, and absurdy thorough.”
Bilge Ebiri, The Village Voice
“An indelible resource for New York City cinephiles.”
Carolyn Lazard, 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

Listings policy

Screen Slate lists repertory, experimental and single-screen limited release/one-off-screening independent films alongside electronic art and museum and gallery exhibitions that feature film and video 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 Screen Slate generally does 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. We also do not list bar screenings; film-related trivia/bingo nights; student film showcases; screenings promoting special interest groups/NGOs; rental/four-wall screenings; screenings at luxury hotels, condos, event spaces, or other real estate development projects.

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 be aware that due to the nature of our extremely limited volunteer staff we do, on occasion, overlook things, and accept our apologies if we are unable to include your event.
