Published biannually since 1978, Millennium Film Journal is the oldest journal of avant-garde film and media art on Planet Earth and has documented the multiple transformations of the cinematic in the hands of artists throughout film history, providing a voice to a community that has tended (heroically) toward marginality. From the materiality of the film strip to the ephemerality of the data cloud, MFJ has continuously tracked, analyzed and historicized the breadth of artist-made cinema, from the earliest days of the pre-cinematic into the possibly non-objective future. Celebrating the 35th Anniversary of this publication’s debut (as well as its 58th issue!), MFJ editor Grahame Weinbren appears in person to present a program of films and videos discussed in recent issues. Works to screen include Stella Brennan’s South Pacific (2007), Catherine Elwes’ There is a Myth (1984), Alfred Guzzetti’s Time Present (2013), Janis Crystal Lipzin’s De Luce 1: Vegetare (2010), Rosa Menkman’s Collapse of Pal (2010), Matthias Müller’s Sleepy Haven (1993), Luther Price’s Nice Biskotts #1 and #2 and Weinbren’s own If a Lion Could Talk (2012) as well as a guided slide-show presentation of MFJ covers past-to-present.
