MFJ 35th Anniversary Screening at MoMA
Theater 2 (The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 2), T2
December 2, 2013, 7pm
Millennium Film Journal (MFJ), one of the oldest continuously published journals of artists’ moving image works, is celebrating 35 years of publication with a special oversized issue. Since its inception in the 1970s, MFJ has documented the multiple transformations of “the cinematic” in the hands of artists. The publication’s sole commitment is to the cinema as an art form rather than a product. Film and media scholar Erica Levin will present a selection of film and video works discussed in her essay “Toward a Social Cinema Revisited,” and MFJ senior editor Grahame Weinbren and co-editor Kenneth White join us to discuss how everything from films and video installations to YouTube have inspired essays in MFJ.
