ONLINE—Focus 45: Cinema in a Time of Crisis

Friday, July 24, 2020, 1 p.m., Online

Cinema is an immediate, immersive, and communal experience. It is an exhibition of artwork tied directly to a specific place and time. As cinemas around the globe prepare to operate in a current and post-pandemic world, new challenges are posed. Curator of Film Exhibitions Jared Case and former curator Jim Healy, now Director of Cinematheque Film Programming at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will discuss the uncertainties of the current climate and plans for the immediate future, including programming and the safety of the audience. The discussion will include a recorded conversation with former Curator of Film Exhibitions Jurij Meden, now Curator of the Film Program at the Austrian Film Museum.

Free to all.
