The 411 on NWFF’s Online Screenings Schedule! (April 13, 2020)
We are committing to our curatorial role over the next couple months. During this age of Corona-chaos, the Internet has become even more of a wild west of content, with thousands of artists and advertisers vying for your attention. Your streaming hours may have increased, but they’re no less precious. Allow our tri-lateral approach to help you use your screen-time wisely:
• FESTIVALS & NWFF CONTENT •
In this time of economic confusion, we are committed to sliding-scale, pay-what-you-can events as much as possible. Ticket-holders are emailed a passcode 30 minutes before each screening. April 15-19: Cadence: Video Poetry Festival: During National Poetry Month, Cadence approaches video poetry as a literary genre presented as visual media that makes new meaning from the combination of text and moving image. Featuring screenings, an artist residency, generative workshops for youth and adults, and juried awards, Cadence fosters critical and creative growth around the medium of video poetry.
• COMMUNITY SCREENINGS •
Sliding-scale, pay-what-you-can events will screen on multiple platforms and support community partners! MIPoPS’ new archival series on Sundays and an ongoing series of discussions around Public Art in Private Space are just a few of the programs streaming and livestreaming for free across Vimeo and Facebook Live! “Ticketed” events include online screenings of local films such as Shelf Life (Apr. 15-26), a rumination on what must become of people boxed in tiny spaces for long, long periods of time. #appropriate
• COMMUNITY MEETUPS •
We will be facilitating a monthly Member Meeting prior to a short film screening and discussion via The Get Together! This month’s takes place on April 20, and we’ll be watching old NWFF-produced gala films. All held online via Zoom! RSVP for the link to access.
• FIRST-RUN NEW RELEASES •
NWFF is over the moon that several film distributors are showing their adaptability and solidarity with art house cinemas through new online distribution models. Join us on your couch for the “theatrical” run of Brazilian Cannes prize-winner Bacurau (with Udo Kier! Mar. 24 – Apr. 15), the record store documentary, Other Music, and so much more it is dizzying! View everything on our calendar.
And please support our continued efforts to innovate our way through this not-great time for arts orgs.
