Ove Rishøj Jensen
Flaherty NYC is currently seeking proposals by a programmer or co-programmers to curate the 2015 Flaherty NYC spring program. Flaherty NYC is one of the cornerstone projects of The Flaherty, home of the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar. We are eager to engage the New York public with thoughtful and provocative cinema, rich with discussion and discourse.
Flaherty NYC is a seasonal screening series, which presents innovative and groundbreaking films, followed by discussions with the makers on aesthetics, the production process, and the challenges of the work. Programmers are asked to create a theme and focus for the series. Discussions will follow each screening providing audiences with a forum to share their artistic concerns with a larger community. Each discussion will build upon the last, as we explore the theme over the course of the season.
Venue: New York City
(Programmer/s must attend screenings to introduce films and filmmakers)
Number of Screenings: 6 (Max. 90 min. film program, followed by 45 min. of discussion)
Proposals should be no more than one page and include the following:
• Theme for the series along with series title
• Identify possible film titles
• Indicate outreach strategies to help build new audiences
• The Flaherty office will contribute to the production of events, printing
• materials; sending email blasts; promoting through social media.
Deadline for submission: August 15, 2014
