Join us for an in-depth discussion on underground cinema culture and the nature of microcinemas—small-scale exhibition venues that provide noncommercial, nontheatrical options for experimental films. The panel includes Beth Hansen (Basement Films, Vice President), Bryan Konefsky (Basement Films, Current Present); Keif Henley (owner/operator of The Guild & former president of Basement Films); and Justin Clifford Rhody (founder & co-operator of No Name Cinema). The conversation will be moderated by CCA Head of Cinema Programming, Luke Henley.

The program will feature a unique 45-minute film program of selections from Basement Films’ archive of 16mm film prints—a cerebral celebration of celluloid, cultural ephemera and orphaned media!

This event is in conjunction with CCA Cinema Gallery’s current exhibition, Basement Films: 30 Years of Undependent Media, currently on view, free and open to the public, through October 15, 2022.
