This event is held at The Innovation Studio, located in Jones Media Center, Baker-Berry Library, Dartmouth College.
This event is sponsored by: Department of Film and Media Studies, Dartmouth College, Film Preservation Associates, Filmmakers Showcase, Howe Library, Jones Media Center, Dartmouth Library, Dartmouth College, Kanopy Streaming, The Leslie Center for the Humanities, Dartmouth College, TCM Turner Classic Movies, and WRIF White River Indie Films.
The Innovation Studio at the Jones Media Center will host a live simulcast of the UNSEEN CINEMA: EARLY AMERICAN AVANT-GARDE FILM 1894-1941, a national broadcast of two innovative archival film programs on TCM Turner Classic Movies at 8:00 P.M. and 10:45 p.m. The feast for the eyes represents decades of preservations and restorations organized by Bruce Posner.
The experimental nature of the live TCM broadcast will be enhanced at Dartmouth Library’s Jones Media Center by the simultaneous playback of an additional 100 short films onto the multi-screen video wall in the Innovation Studio. The complete screening program runs 4¼-hours and is anticipated to end at 12:15 a.m. Monday.
The free screening event has limited seating, but the extended duration and experimental nature of the screening should be able to accommodate all who wish to attend. Refreshments will be served.
