Cellular Cinema is an organically evolving, ongoing screening series of experimental film, video and performance. As far as we know its the only regularly occurring event in Minneapolis or St. Paul that features short form, experimental contemporary moving image art.|
The Cellular Cinema community is dedicated to the idea that moving image art can be a realm of exploration, improvisation and play on a small scale, using a wide range of tools, techniques and technologies, unbound by the commercial considerations of mainstream narrative media.
We have the capacity to screen work on 16mm, super-8, sometimes with multiple projectors, sometimes including live sound or performance accompaniment, as well as HD and SD video.
Beginning in October 2014, the Cellular Cinema community has welcomed guest curators from across the country and has featured work of numerous nationally renowned and local artists.
July guest: Steve Polta: at the Crossroads
For CC14, Steve Polta, the artistic director, archivist and lead programmer at the San Francisco Cinematheque, will present a masterclass on the curation process for their annual traveling program of experimental film, CROSSROADS.
CROSSROADS is SF Cinematheques annual film festival celebrating recent (and rediscovered) artist-made film, video and performance cinema. Founded in 2010, each year CROSSROADS presents a diverse line up of contemporary work from the international community. It is presented annually over three to four days in early April at San Franciscos historic Victoria Theatre, with a rotating cast of supporting venues. In its six years of existence, CROSSROADS has quickly emerged as a significant international film/video showcase, having become a choice festival for filmmakers to premiere and screen work, and a destination festival for engaged curators, film enthusiasts, like-minded filmmakers and loyal community members.
