Tonight’s screening will take place at 7:30 p.m. in Wilde Auditorium. Thursday’s screening will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Hartford Art School video studio, located in Room 216 of the Renée Samuels Center at the art school.
The presentations are co-sponsored by the Media Arts Department (Hartford Art School) and Cinema Studies Department (A&S).

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.
