This morning, one of our dear founders, Jonas Mekas, passed away. We are grateful for his words, his images, and his long inspirational life. His light and legacy will live on in our community and the history of avant-garde film. We are dedicating our 2019 New Year New Work film festival to his memory. Our deepest condolences to the Mekas Family, Oona and Sebastian.

About Charles S. Cohen
“I was in a position to help, and I thought that I should. They are a wonderful group doing important work, and there is no other place to go and see this kind of thing. They needed a storage space for their archives, and this meets their needs.”
The Film-Makers’ Coop / New American Cinema Group is very grateful to our benefactor, Charles S. Cohen, whose generous support allows us to thrive in New York City.
Our on-location screening room has been named in his honor.
