Poetics of Curation
FMC is proud to offer a workshop on curating works of avant garde and experimental cinema with programmer Devon Narine-Singh.
Join FMC Programmer Devon Narine-Singh for a workshop that explores the curatorial process using FMC’s archive. You will come away from the class being a co-curator for an upcoming FMC program made in collaboration with other workshop participants. Select excerpts of FMC films from past programs will be shown alongside a tour of the paper archive led by FMC Executive Director MM Serra. The workshop will take place in two sessions, 12pm-2pm and then 3pm-6pm. The first one will introduce participants to FMC, the archive and prior programs. The second session will have you research and construct a program that will premiere as part of FMC’s 60th Anniversary celebration this Fall.
Proof of Vaccination Required
The workshop is limited to 8 spots. Purchase information: https://filmmakerscoop.ecwid.com/FMC-Workshop-Poetics-of-Curation-p371001468
