Hoboken, NJ 07030: Womenswork Media Collective
3:00PM, Hoboken Historical Museum, 1301 Hudson Street

  Womenswork 2006 is an exhibition of experimental film and video by
  members of the Womenswork Media Collective, a group of media artists
  based at New Jersey City University. Founded in 2002, the Womenswork
  Media Collective facilitates the production, promotion, and exhibition
  of independent film and video by women. The collective is dedicated to
  empowering, promoting, nurturing, and mentoring women in the arts.
  Womenswork 2006 premiered at the Fort Lee Museum and was screened at the
  Jersey City Museum, Makeready Press Gallery, Montclair, NJ, and at the
  Red Saw Gallery, Newark. The showcase is currently installed at the
  Jersey City Museum in the Panasonic Video Zone through August 2006. A
  question and answer session with the artists and a reception will follow
  the screening. The suggested donation for this event at the Hoboken
  Historical Museum is $5.00. Free parking is available around the corner
  at the IN PARK parking garage at 12th Street and Shipyard Lane in
  Hoboken. For further information contact Jane Steuerwald, showcase
  coordinator, at email suppressed, or Robert Foster, Executive Director,
  Hoboken Historical Museum, at (address suppressed) Program to
  include: The Memory Box by Jane Steuerwald. Within three universal
  themes – Loss, Mystery, and Love – the filmmaker intercuts archival,
  family, and personal film footage with art songs sung by her mother at
  the 1964 Worlds Fair. The Memory Box uses precious and perfectly
  preserved mementos of family histories to establish connections between
  past and present, music and image, love and loss. Burgeoning Senesce by
  NJCU student Michelle Mumoli of Newark and NJCU student Polina Zaitseva
  of Paterson. Burgeoning Senesce is an experimental narrative short that
  interweaves stop-motion animation, home movie footage, video, and
  photographs to explore notions of womanhood and issues of how time takes
  its toll on womens bodies, hearts, emotions, and minds. In My Bedroom by
  NJCU senior Melissa Polin of Eatontown. A self-portrait executed in
  split-screen, the artist juxtaposes her personality in front of the
  camera with footage of her in the solitude of her bedroom as she goes
  about everyday rituals. The work is simultaneously playful, sensitive,
  and direct. Father Figure by NJCU alumni Nicole McNeill of Jersey City
  is an experimental documentary that explores issues of selective memory
  and confronts family secrets and truths. The film also touches upon how
  camera images can be deceitful. The Forgotten Ones by NJCU alumni
  Stephanie Attar. Derived from a poem by the artist and visualized
  through her exploration of forgotten and abandoned sites in New Jersey,
  The Forgotten Ones is a lyrical piece about loss, alienation, and
  solitude. Family Planning by NJCU alumni Delmira Valladares of Jersey
  City. A twisted fairy tale with dark undertones, Family Planning is
  about a bride who is called upon to be a noble protector. Confined to
  her apartment, the bride engages in ritualistic exercises and dances to
  condition herself for love.

  Doctor, (2006, 23 min). A surreal animated poem set in a crumbling

7:30pm, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission Street at Third

  Jackie Moe and Artists In Person. Curator Jackie Moe gathers short films
  every month for a screening series at Edinburgh Castle Pub that harbors
  a vast proof of home grown film talent in the City. Tonight she's
  assembled a cast with new and classic shorts from that burgeoning scene.
  Cathy Begien's playful maturity and unintentional detachment are
  expressed in Blackout, The Dream Diaries and more. David Enos constructs
  careful, primitive histories and home-made portraits in Light My Fire
  (Jim Morrison) and In Service to the Waxen Moon (the Wolf-Man). Sarah
  Enid presents The Great Unknown, portrait of a young man with an old
  hand, and The Progeny, a fable about an unlikely family. Jose
  Rodriguez's taste for depravity and longing for beauty fuel Boy Crazy,
  exploring sexuality and indulgence. Plus many more films from this
  hotbed of production. ADMISSION: $8 General, $5 Cinematheque Members,
  Seniors, Disabled, Students (w. ID). Advance Tickets: 415-978-ARTS

Brooklyn, New York: Ocularis
8 PM, 70 North 6th Street

  Our show of shows! Founded in June, 1996 as a rooftop film series

  highly eventful decade, we've gathered ten individuals—founders, board
  members, directors, et al—who have helped make Ocularis what it is
  today. Each will present a film or video that they've found
  representative of their time with the organization, along with an
  anecdote or two. And the results, at once hit parade and history lesson,
  are to sure to make for one of our most memorable evenings yet. Work to
