Curating Moving Images

Orphans Film Symposium

This course focuses on the practice of film exhibition and programming in museums, archives, and independent exhibition venues. It examines the goals of public programming, the constituencies such programs attempt to reach, and the cultural ramifications of presenting archival materials to audiences. During the biennial Orphans Film Symposium, student work often takes the form of production of the live event. To learn more, check out Orphans Online (2020) and past symposia.
