Black Maria Film and Video Festival
The Black Maria Film and Video Festival returns to campus!
The festival, in its 29th year, will be presented on Tuesday, Feb. 23, and Wednesday, Feb. 24, at 7:30 p.m. in Wilde Auditorium. The event is co-sponsored by the Media Arts Department (Hartford Art School) and Cinema Studies Department (A&S).
General admission is $8 – FREE for students with current ID.
This year the program features "La Muerte En Tres Actas" by University cinema student Nathan Pancione, with sound design by Hartt composition student Devin DiSanto. This work received recognition this year as Best Experimental Film Recognition and Stellar Experimental Selection.
The Black Maria Festival promotes experimental and independent media works ranging from animation to documentary to social critique to structural experiments. Each evening's program is different and runs approximately 90 minutes. Proceeds from general admission will go toward purchase of a work from the festival for the Media Arts Library in the Hartford Art School for classroom use and student research purposes.
