Experimental filmmaking in New York City - Applications Open
Interested in learning more about experimental filmmaking in New York City?
Consider applying to the new the Field School Program, Experimental Cinema in New York City, led by Professors Roger Beebe and Erica Levin. All student expenses will be fully covered through a generous grant from the Global Arts & Humanities Discovery Theme. Over a long weekend in October 1-4, 2020, we will visit sites where experimental film and video is produced, exhibited and discussed in New York City, including: Microscope, an artist-run gallery, UnionDocs, a non-profit center for documentary art, and Negativeland, a small-gauge film production facility. In addition, students will also visit museums and filmmaker-run organizations where experimental film and video art is screened, distributed, and archived. Finally, students will have the opportunity to attend selected screenings at Projections, the Experimental Film Program at the New York Film Festival. New York City has long been an important center of experimental cinema and moving image art. Spending three days immersed in the city’s vibrant experimental film and art community, students will have the opportunity to engage the professional and informal networks that make up this unique world of filmmakers, artists, scholars, festival programmers, film archivists, and curators. Applications are due April 15. For more information please contact Professors Beebe (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Levin (email@example.com) directly.
