Dir. Georges Méliès
With Victor André and Bleuette Bernon (uncredited)
Riotously popular at the time of its release and the best -known of the hundreds of fantasy films made by Georges Méliès, A Trip to the Moon is regarded as the first science fiction film, using innovative animation and special effects, including the well-known image of the spaceship landing in the moon's eye. Not only embracing the emerging possibilities of in camera special FX trickery, A Trip to the Moon pushed the boundaries of the cinematic form into a new medium beyond theater.

The Real World
Dir. George Verschoor
30min, Digital Projection
With Becky Blasband, Andre Comeau, Heather B. Gardner, Julie Gentry, Norman Korpi, Eric Nies, Kevin Powell
Producers Mary-Ellis Bunim and Jonathan Murray decided against the original scripted plan of the show, believing seven diverse people would have enough of a basis upon which to interact without scripts. Since its debut, The Real World has grown into the blueprint for contemporary reality TV. Breaking from the modernist trappings of the auteur theory of cinema, the Real World has emerged as an unexpected watershed work. One that has ushered in a new approach to the cinematic process, and with it forever changed the cultural landscape.
