Migrating Forms grew out of the New York Underground Film Festival, which
ended in April 2008.

Over its 15 year life, NYUFF evolved into an internationally respected
showcase for new forms and genres of film, video and media art, premiering
features including Sam Green's THE WEATHER UNDERGROUND (2003), Eddy Moretti
and Suroosh Alvi's HEAVY METAL IN BAGHDAD (2008), Ryan Trecartin's A FAMILY
FINDS ENTERTAINMENT (2005), Suki Hawley and Michael Galinsky's HORNS AND
HALOS (2002), Mike Kelley's DAY IS DONE (2006), Redmond Entwistle's PATERSON
- LODZ (2007), Jim Finn's INTERKOSMOS (2006), and shorts by Peggy Ahwesh,
Cory Arcangel, Jem Cohen, Kevin Jerome Everson, James Fotopoulos, Jeanne
Liotta, Luther Price, Kelly Reichardt, Steve Reinke, Hito Steyerl, Deborah
Stratman, Leslie Thornton, Robert Todd, Aaron Valdez, and hundreds of

Migrating Forms is led by two former directors and programmers of NYUFF,
Nellie Killian and Kevin McGarry. The festival continues in the tradition of
presenting the best of new experimental, documentary and avant-garde film
and video each April at New York's historic Anthology Film Archives.
Migrating Forms expands beyond festival programming through year-round
screenings in New York and elsewhere. Our current series of experimental
features at BAMcinématek in Brooklyn launched on October 22, 2008 with the
World Premiere of DELIVER, Jennifer Montgomery's all-female remake of
DELIVERANCE made with an intergenerational cast of film and video artists.
