Clocking in at 508 pages, Craig Baldwin: Avant to Live! documents the life and work of the acclaimed filmmaker, curator and underground legend. Meticulously detailed, with contributions from over 50 writers, artists, illustrators and ideologues, Avant to Live! examines the artist’s films analytically as a coherent and meaningful body of work and critical artist’s statement while also examining the cultural impact of Baldwin’s Other Cinema curatorial project. Full details here.

Want a signed copy? Then join us in advance of our official launch (at San Francisco’s Roxie Theater; same day—May 28) for this exclusive pre-launch “signing reception” featuring Avant to Live! editors Brett Kashmere and Steve Polta, other contributors and Craig Baldwin himself in person. Admission is by advance order (from the Roxie Theater) here.

Admission to this afternoon Signing Reception is offered to those who pre-order books “bundled” with tickets to the May 28 Roxie Launch Event **only.** There will be no walk-ups admissions to this Reception. And while copies of Avant to Live! can be purchased at the formal Launch Celebration (or online), there will be no time for signing at this later event. Want your copy signed? Join us at this Reception!

Craig Baldwin: Avant to Live! is a collaborative project of San Francisco Cinematheque and INCITE: Journal of Experimental Media. Full details here.
