New Vision Cinema Series

Curated by Michael Park

Thursday September 29th at 8:00 PM

Le Petit Versailles, 346 east Houston Street (Lower East Side).

Continuing in the tradition of the Invisible Film Series, the New Vision Cinema Series presents a broad range of film and videos from an equally-diverse selection of cineastes. Founded in 2000 by Jennifer MacMillan as the Invisible Film Series, the New Vision Cinema Series has endeavored to showcase the talents of some of the finest local (and sometimes, not-so- local) independent film and video talents of the Greater New York City area. Since its inception, the series has shown works of such notables as Stan Brakhage, Mike Kuchar, Nick Zedd, Jennifer Reeves, and Bradley Eros. With the departure of Ms. MacMillan from its fold (a hard act to follow), the series has been under the sole curatorship of its former co-curator, Michael Park.

The New Vision Cinema Series is a short film and video series focussing on all the various genres of short film, be they experimental, narrative, animation, documentary, or even music video, and any combination thereof. Each installment of the series runs from 90 minutes -2 hours, and will include an average of ten artists works each.
