DCTV and the NYFVC are proud to host an evening of documentaries coming straight out of last fall's Hurricane Sandy.
Featuring live footage taken on the ground from those within the storm, this curation of cell-phone cinema as well as home videos and sound recordings will allow us as viewers to collectively reframe and process an event that greatly impacted and affected our beloved city, seeing how citizen-journalism and community-generated content can be some of the most engaging forms of storytelling.
This screening of short films will be introduced by Sandy Storyline, a participatory documentary project, and followed by a Q&A with filmmakers and Sandy survivors as well as a reception.
Join us for this special evening of reflection and inspiration.
This is a free event for DCTV and NYFVC Members, and $10 for general admission.
New York's oldest continuously operating non-profit serving the independent film, video and electronic arts community, the Council has for 66 years been a haven for lively discussions, panels and screenings. Founded in 1946, the Council was one of the only film organizations operating in New York. Now, in a rich sea of film and media organizations, the Council is unique in drawing together members for conversation across the breadth of our community. The all volunteer board and roster of members includes important narrative, avant-garde and documentary filmmakers, programmers, archivists, scriptwriters, critics, professors, animators and others with a passion for film. Dedicated to service, the NYFVC spends every penny of its membership dues ($40/year; $20/year for students) on programming and events, which we are largely free for members and open at low cost to the public.
