Screening Seminars.

Creative Media Institute question and answer session

The goal of the Seminars is to bring together a community of diverse perspectives for week-long, intensive, combined looks into specific areas of cinema, video, and photography. Participants take part in daily screenings bookended by discussions and interviews led by artists, scholars, and critics. Guest artists bring in colleagues to screen and discuss works.

Seminars fall on the 1st and 3rd weeks of the CMI. Anyone (artists, practitioners, educators, arts administrators and writers, lovers of cinema) interested in attending the Screening Seminars can apply. Learn about program fees and how to apply.

The curators for the 2015 CMI Seminars will be announced in early Spring 2015.
