SEEN/UNSEEN: A Festival of Experimental Film will immerse audiences in a curated selection of experimental films ranging from the early works of groundbreaking filmmakers Sara Kathryn Arledge, Maya Deren and Stan Brakhage to current works by established and emerging artists. Presenting a diverse sampler of experimental and avant-garde filmmaking styles, the festival invites you to sit back, let go of your expectations and open yourself to enjoying cinema in new ways.

Each night culminates in a live-on-stage conversation or performance by some of our special guests: SEEN/UNSEEN curator Kim Voynar; filmmakers Vanessa Renwick, Sabine Gruffat and Brent Green; and musician Brendan Canty.

May’s Second Saturday (1-4 p.m. May 11) will include free, family-friendly screenings as well as related activities. Evening screenings are most likely appropriate for audiences 13.+

Grab a drink with us before (and during) the show -- a wine and beer bar will open at 6:30 each evening. You can purchase your drink bracelet on site.
