Dear Friends, Save the Date!
On Wednesday, November 16, 2011, we are holding our fifth annual Film-Makers’ Coop Benefit Concert and Art Auction at Santos Party House, 96 Lafayette Street (between Walker and White streets), from 7:00 until midnight. Tickets are $40 and are available at the door or online here.
Music icons Philip Glass and Laurie Anderson will headline a night of incredible music and film to benefit the Film-Makers’ Cooperative, the artist-run, non-profit organization that supports the best in avant-garde and experimental cinema.
The FMC Benefit Concert, a bi-annual event, is always a highlight of the season, and will feature live performances by Glass and Anderson as well as David Barton’s band, Liquid Blonde; Little Annie; Transgendered Jesus; The Love Butchers; and DJ Spencer Sweeney.
One-hundred percent of the proceeds will help the Coop maintain, restore, and promote the films in its collection, the largest assemblage of avant-garde and experimental film in the world, featuring 4,300 rare and unique works as well as new media by established filmmakers such as Jonas Mekas, Ken Jacobs, Taka Iimura and emerging artists.
Additionally, guests will have the opportunity to bid on artwork by Peggy Ahwesh, Jonas Mekas, Bradley Eros, Mark Street, Guy Maddin and a host of other amazing works, with proceeds going to benefit the Coop.
Please come out and support us!
