Each of our quarterly calendars contains hundreds of films and videos all grouped into a number of series or categories. Along with preservation screenings, theatrical premieres, thematic series, and retrospectives, we’re equally dedicated to presenting work by individuals operating at the vanguard of non-commercial cinema. Each month we showcase at least one such program, focusing on moving-image artists who are emerging, at their peak, or long-established but still prolific. These programs are collected under the rubric SHOW & TELL, to emphasize the presence of the filmmakers at each and every program.
This calendar features visits from Chicago-based filmmaker and programmer Josh B Mabe; Japanese musician and media artist Takashi Makino, whose work often involves multiple projections and live music; and Ian Helliwell, who will travel from Brighton, UK, to present two programs drawn from his extensive body of experimental video works.
