The 1938 International Amateur Movie Show: A Reconstruction
Join CSIF and Contemporary Calgary for a night of amateur cinema from 1938!
Charles Tepperman reconstructs the International Amateur Movie Show, which was presented at Columbia University (New York) on April 6, 1938. Amateur movie organizations around the world submitted their best films for the screening, and ultimately 10 films from 9 different countries were presented. The Amateur Movie Database Project has located several of these films –travelogues, short fiction films, and avant-garde works – and presents a partial reconstruction of the program. (Digital formats, 83 minutes)
WakCutt AKA waksmuseum will live-mix accompaniment to the silent films from his personal vinyl collection.
This is a licensed event, so arrive early to enjoy a signature cocktail from the bar!
When: Thursday, October 10th, 7-9pm
Where: Contemporary Calgary (701 11 St SW)
Tickets: $10 General Admission, $5 for CSIF/Contemporary Calgary Members
