Go to this if you can!!  Big ideas about micro cinemas. 


Thursday January 31st at 7:30pm
Hosted at UNIONDOCS, 322 Union Avenue, Brooklyn, NY

NYFVC is pleased to kick off the year with a Microcinema Summit. New York City has a diverse history of alternative screening spaces, yet many agree it’s currently undergoing a watershed moment with new crops of intimately-sized venues redefining the way audiences encounter work, interact with each other, and gain exposure to new cinematic forms.

Come listen to a panel of owners, organizers and programmers representing some of these venues, all with varying kinds of programming and operating models, who will address everything from organization and administration to programming and outreach: mission statements, volunteer organization, approaches to institutional support, developing programming, working with outside curators, supporting artists, community relations, and more. It will be insightful but not overly formal (how to juggle making popcorn AND take tickets!), eventually developing into an open discussion between the audience and participants.

Light Industry - Thomas Beard, Co-Founder and Director
Maysles Cinema - Jessica Green, Cinema Director
Microscope Gallery - Elle Burchill
Spectacle - Steve Macfarlane, Head Programmer/Volunteer
UnionDocs - Christopher Allen, Founder/Artistic Director

Moderated by Rachael Rakes, Film co-editor for the Brooklyn Rail and Assistant Curator of Film at Museum of the Moving Image
