Michael Kuchar in person!

Filmforum started its regular public screenings in January 1976, and we're doing better than ever! We're delighted that we are still bringing you film and video art that you won't be able to see anywhere else. In the coming year we will be bringing you an amazing array of films and videos over the next year, such as highlights from the Ann Arbor Film Festival, our Festival of (In)appropriation, traveling artists such as Michael Robinson and Fred Worden, a brilliant new documentary from China, filmmaker Tomonari Nishikawa, and a wide array of contemporary film and video work exploring the possibilities of the media. Fall 2012. Spring 2012 will bring our mammoth 16-part series Alternative Projections: Experimental Film in Los Angeles, 1945-1980, as part of Pacific Standard Time.

We're celebrating our 35th anniversary with a celebration of Kodachrome, that marvelous film stock that has just been forced into early retirement. We're screening a few classic films shot or printed on Kodachrome, followed by an intimate and delightful reception, and we hope that you will join us!
