We dug into the treasure trove and gathered together a program of rarely screened 16mm film prints by the likes of Lynn Shelton, Dayna Hanson, Jon Behrens, Brandon Schaeffer, Reed O’Beirne, Caryn Cline, Web Crowell, Lori Goldston and more! Come see Megan Griffiths play a pizza delivery person, the old PSA for the Grand Illusion and loads of other fun cinematic moments from yesteryear.
