Mono No Aware X Film-Makers' Coop

In an effort to bring closer communities of independent filmmakers in New York, on September 22, 2017 we invite you to a presentation of short films by members of The Film-Makers’ Cooperative and MONO NO AWARE.

The films in this program are either in the archives at the Film-Makers’ Coop, the result of a MONO NO AWARE workshop, or works by former students or instructors at MONO NO AWARE and they have been curated with the intention of showing a snapshot of a variety of less conventional filmmaking techniques to expand ways of thinking about the medium.

The Film-makers’ Cooperative is the largest archive and distributor of independent and Avant-garde films in the world. Created by artists in 1961, as the distribution branch of The New American Cinema Group, the Coop has more than 5,000 films, videotapes and dvds in its collection.

MONO NO AWARE is a 501c3 cinema-arts non-profit organization working to promote connectivity through the cinematic experience. Based in Brooklyn, NY, MONO NO AWARE presents monthly artist-in-person screenings, organizes affordable analogue filmmaking workshops, facilitates equipment rentals, operates a film distribution initiative, plans cinema field trips, and hosts an annual exhibition for contemporary artists and international filmmakers whose work incorporates Super 8mm, 16mm, 35mm or altered light projections as part of a live performance or installation.
