A Festival of Experimental, Essay, First Person, and Artists' Film
Cosmic Rays is an annual celebration of non-commercial short films that extend the idea of film as art.
Cosmic Rays screens work that:
- Experiments with the formal possibilities of film and video.
- Explores hybrid forms and the hard-to-describe spaces between filmmaking modes and genres.
- Speaks with a personal or poetic voice, or explores novel ways of telling stories.
- Eschews convention and commerce.
- Has utopian aspirations and weird friends.
Cosmic Rays is excited by filmmaking that expands our idea of what film is and what it can be.
