Experiments In Cinema v16.1

May 1—22, 2021

Each year, Experiments in Cinema brings together the international community of cinematic un-dependents for a film festival that is designed to connect New Mexico to this exciting international community and to inspire a new generation of moving image artists to recognize the value of their media voices. This year, we've made the festival available here for you via streaming.

Although the festival is free, please consider making a tax deductible donation.
All donations will go directly to Guild Cinema (currently closed by the State of New Mexico). Guild Cinema has been our festival's home base for the past 16 years and is Albuquerque's only art house theater. Guild is the only theater in New Mexico that is able to project 8mm, 16mm, 35mm films, as well as all digital formats.
