Film :: Theory Screening Series

Film :: Theory is a yearlong series of screenings, talks, and public discussions that aims to explore the relation between critical thought and the moving image. Instead of viewing philosophy as a way to explain cinema or film as a means to depict theory, we will explore how these mediums can work together, confront each other, or even begin to merge in the interest of larger intellectual and political projects. The series will include film adaptions of critical texts, video essays about the work of specific philosophers, and projects based on collaboration between theorists and experimental artists. Screenings will be accompanied by informal, speculative presentations by artists, scholars, and curators, and will be followed by collective discussion and light refreshments.

This series is part of the Steinhardt 125th Anniversary Celebration. Funding has been generously provided by the Steinhardt 125th Anniversary Grants, and by the Department of Art and Art Professions.

All screenings are on Wednesday evenings at 7pm in the Einstein Auditorium, Room 105 of the Barney Building.
