So no discussions of recent work by Ernie Gehr, Gunvor Nelson, Micheal Snow,
to say nothing of a host of newer and very exciting digital avant-garde

At this late stage, if video is not treated as just another cinematic tool
on this list, then this list is about a format (or rather group of formats),
not about an approach to making cinema. That will chase away many who might
actually have something to contribute to discussions on, say, 16mm film
preservation or hand-processing techniques. While such areas are important
and will of course remain a crucial part of Frameworks regardless, a format
limited discussion of avant-garde cinema that excludes video is by
definition, in 2007, a discussion that censors half of its subject,
destroying its relevance and worthiness.
