For those of you in NYC...
The Film-Makers' Cooperative celebrates 2009 with a holiday party and benefit screening at Millennium Film Workshop in Manhattan this Saturday at 8 p.m.
On tap are more than a dozen films and videos produced in 2008-09, as well as classic films new to the FMC distribution library and a few surprises from the archive. Come celebrate a year of fantastic film -- as well as the FMC's new home -- with food, wine and film.
A silent auction, featuring works by artists Donna Cameron, Jack Waters, Bradley Eros, Lynne Sachs, Scott Nyerges and others will also be held to benefit the FMC.
Filmmakers whose work will be shown include Jasmine Hirst, Peter Gidal, Jonas Mekas, Robert Breer, Ryan Marino, Maria Niro, Josh Solondz, Phil Costa Cummings, Taka Iimura and Stan Brakhage.
The Film-Makers' Cooperative is the largest archive and distributor of independent and avant-garde films in the world. Created in 1962 by artists including Jonaks Mekas and Ken Jacobs, the Co-op has more than 5,000 films, videotapes and DVDs in its collection. This fall, after being evicted from its former home in the Clocktower Gallery, the Co-op moved into a beautiful new facility at 475 Park Avenue South.
Come celebrate with us!
