Alternative Cinema is the online intersection between the divergent subcultures of British independent, underground, experimental, protest, cult, Avant- Garde, D.I.Y. and Artist’s film and video. It’s an event listings guide which covers the film club scene through to pop-up cinemas, microcinemas, gallery installations, local film festivals and pub screenings. If you want to join the audience, this is the gate to the spectacular and subversive realm of alternative cinema.

The minimum requirement is that your event must be some kind of alternative to the commercial mainstream feature film industry.

Films from the Ruben/Bentson Moving Image Collection + intro

An introduction to the Ruben/Bentson collection of works that delve into what makes life worth living.

The title of this event is inspired by the closing words in George Kuchar’s camp masterpiece Hold Me While I’m Naked. It is a simple explanatory line, both affirming and fatalistic, that sweetly sums up the driving forces behind scores of bold creative ambitions. The Ruben/Bentson Moving Images Collection at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis fortifies this audacious thinking by providing a home and a context for over 1,000 titles, bringing to light works and artists that delve into what makes life worth living. Archivist-programmer Ruth Hodgins and curator Sheryl Mousley introduce the Collection, including works by Uri Aran, Roger Jacoby, George Kuchar and Gunvor Nelson. Hodgins and Mousley will be in conversation with Benjamin Cook, Director of LUX, following the screening.

In partnership with LUX and the Walker Art Center
