Proposal Draft: The Unseen Cinema: Early American Avant-Garde Film 1893-1940
In 1996, Ciné Salon began as an alternative venue for the screening
discussion of motion picture arts in the Upper Valley.
Outside of commercial, educational and broadcast possibilities available,
the informal nature of the Howe Library presentations mimic the home movie
screenings held by Amanda and Bruce Posner in their home.
Ciné Salon offers the Posners a way of sharing their extensive knowledge
independent artist-made moving media and its rich century-long history.
Each year for the past three years, two thematic series
(October-November-December and March-April-May) consisting of five
film/video programs have been successfully presented at the Howe Library,
Hanover, NH. From time-to-time extra special screenings are held at
Dartmouth College by Hopkins Center Film.
The programs are curated from Posners' personal film & video collection
from prestigious film archives including The Museum of Modern Art,
Anthology Film Archives, International Museum of Photography & Film George
Eastman House, Archives du Film du CNC, Film-Makers' Cooperative, and
The film & video programs are preceded by introductory digressions by Bruce
Posner, who uses the informal forum to formulate theoretical aesthetics and
historical antecedents on the nature of motion picture arts.
Film professionals Nora Jacobson and Barbara Van Dyke have also embellished
the series with personal appearances. Upcoming speakers include writer and
activist Grace Paley and avant-garde filmmaker Stan Brakhage.
Ciné Salon continues to keep abreast of world-class cinema arts, stylistic
innovations and ground-breaking trends throughout the entire history of
cinematic and videographic arts from around the world.
Our little screenings have been deemed by more than one attendee as "one
the best kept secrets of the Upper Valley."
Come share the cinematic wonder.
We need your financial support to keep the films rolling.
