Spring 2012

About the Season

This season's curatorial adventure brings a number of special guests and collaborators, beginning with our friends at the Northwest Film Center for the 35th annual Portland International Film Festival for a night of bittersweet new works by international artists like Ben Rivers, John Price, and Sylvia Schedelbauer. Later in February things turn transgressive with a program inspired by the art of Bruce Nauman and including two of his early videos. This program also kicks off our new series Screen/OffScreen, which aims to put moving-image work in context with other arts like performance, sound, and photography.
March brings special guest curator Mark Toscano from Academy Film Archive, with some consciousness expanding psychedelic experimental shorts from LA. In May we have two special guests, video artist Dani Leventhal and later in the month animator Jim Trainor for the first-ever Experimental Film Festival Portland, headed by our friends at Grand Detour. Finally, spring closes with a co-presentation with the Creative Music Guild where we'll be installing a multi-screen projection of video by naturalist Timothy Treadwell, accompanied by a live musical soundtrack.  
As always, we want to thank the people that made this season happen: the amazing artists whose work we adore, the theaters and galleries that welcome us, the local businesses that support us, the Regional Arts & Culture Council, the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery, and you (!) for contributing to our fundraiser, for becoming members, and especially for attending our screenings.
