Happiness is a Warm Projector is a program of select works from the first 8 years of Experiments in Cinema film festival. EIC is an annual celebration of all things cinematic produced by Basement Films. Basement Films is one of the few remaining first wave micro-cinemas left in the United States that has been supporting underrepresented forms of media since 1991. Each year EIC brings the international community of cinematic "un-dependents" to Albuquerque, New Mexico reminding us that filmmaking has a cultural responsibility that transcends the pathetically produced, popcorn poo-poo that we have come to know as "going to the movies."
