Basement Films: 30 Years of Undependent Media
July 15 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
CCA celebrates the 30th anniversary of fellow nonprofit, Basement Films, with an exhibition featuring print ephemera, sculpture, and experimental films in the CCA Cinema Gallery, located in the lobby of CCA Cinema. The video component of the exhibition has been curated from Basement Films’ longstanding festival, Experiments in Cinema, and features artists Raven Chacon with Cristobal Martinez, Monique Romero, Marika Borgeson, Wago Kreider, Georg Koszulinski, and M.C. Jonet with L.A. Williams, presented on a single channel monitor with supplied headphones.
Basement Films is an Albuquerque-based organization that supports experimental, independent, and under-represented forms of film and video making. Founded in 1991, the nonprofit microcinema was part of the first wave of independently operated venues specializing in moving image arts that exist outside of the mainstream theatrical distribution system. CCA recognizes and values Basement Films’ accomplishments as an institution that both facilitates creators and educates audiences in the realm of arts and culture.
The exhibition will be on view through October 15, 2022, and is located in CCA’s Cinema Gallery – Free and open to the public during CCA Cinema’s regular operating hours (open 30 minutes prior to the day’s showtimes). Click here for more information.
