Canyon Cinema Salon

The Canyon Cinema Salon is an opportunity for dialogue and exploration,  these events are designed as a platform for the community to directly engage and learn from moving image artists in an intimate setting.  Artists will have an open forum to present work from their repertoire,  discuss creative process, and share their inspirations. Free and open to the public, the Salon series is hosted by New Nothing Cinema (16 Sherman Street, off Folsom Street between 6th and 7th Streets in SOMA). Salons are 60-90 minutes in length, containing no more than 60 minutes of screened material.

Special thanks to Rock Ross and New Nothing Cinema. This is a volunteer operation run by the Canyon Cinema Foundation Board of Directors, it’s staff and filmmakers in the collection.
