presented by Basement Films & 516 ARTS

Experiments in Cinema is an annual Basement Films production that brings the international community of cinematic experimentalists to New Mexico to inspire a new generation of home-grown filmmakers to recognize the value of their media voices and to participate in shaping future trends in cultural representation.

On April 3, join 516 ARTS and Basement Films for this 45 minute program curated by Michelle Mellor featuring select short films from Experiments in Cinema v8.53 that study surface, "flatness" and the materiality of the cinematic medium. This event is a pre-festival teaser to the full festival taking place in Albuquerque April 15 – 21 and is in conjunction with the exhibition Flatlanders & Surface Dwellers. Catering generously provided by Fairwinds - Rio Rancho.
