Film-Makers’s Cooperative Benefit — I


800 Chestnut Street

San Francisco, CA, 94133

The Film-Makers’ Cooperative in New York City is one of the most important film resources in the U.S. The first not-for-profit, member-directed film distributor in the country, it has served as a model for film cooperatives throughout Europe and America, including the Bay Area’s own Canyon Cinema. The Film-Makers’ Cooperative has always placed its democratic ideals before its own financial self-interest, leaving it vulnerable in the conservative ‘80s. The Cinematheque is presenting 3 shows in honor of the Coop’s 25 years of service with the proceeds going to aid the Film-Makers’ Cooperative Catalog Publication Fund for the Coop’s first new catalog in 13 years.

Films: Ghosts Before Breakfast by Hans Richter, Adventures of Jimmy by James Broughton, Mosholu Holiday by George Kuchar, Centuries of June by Joseph Cornell & Stan Brakhage, The Web by Marjorie Keller, Fuses by Carolee Schneemann, Spiral by Emily Breer, and Big Brother by Caroline Avery.
