Canyon Cinema Pop-Up – Opening Reception December 4, 2013

Posted November 25th, 2013 in Announcements, Canyon Cinema Pop-Up, Events and Screenings, News / Events

The Canyon Cinema Pop-Up, is a three week occupation of Kadist Art Foundation‘s storefront space (3285 20th Street in San Francisco, CA) in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission district. The initiative presents a broad selection from Canyon’s deep history, made accessible to the viewing public in the form of a video-library-loan program.

The public is invited to browse through and loan up to three titles from a collection of over 150 DVDs from over 50 filmmakers that showcase the breadth and strengths of Canyon Cinema. Visually modeled on the video rental store, the Canyon Cinema Pop-Up stays true to the aesthetics of Canyon’s past, while it argues for the relevance and visual experience of film in a networked future.

In the room adjacent to the Pop-up there is a micro-cinema designed to enable visitors to instantly preview some of the works available for loan. It will also be used for the presentation of 16mm screening programs and discussions by local filmmakers and scholars.
