The Showcase Night Is a full night of entertainment!
Starting a 6:30pm with a pre-movie reception party, the Showcase will offer everyone an opportunity to network and enjoy a cold beer and some food as well as stock up on your go-to concession stand offerings!
The actual showcase begins at 7:30pm. In addition to the locally produced short films submitted for consideration will be animations from Hamilton College students & students at MWPAI,and other short features.
Following the Showcase will be the second special presentation from The Association of Moving Image Archivists — 22 astonishing films and videos in 110 minutes from archives and archivists around the world! Archival Screening Night has been the centerpiece of every AMIA conference since 1991. What makes Archival Roadshow Edition special is that for the first time ever, this members-only event is being made accessible to the public to see the incredible, strange, astonishing, hilarious and curious treasures from the world’s moving image archives. This cinematic Cabinet of Wonders features a wonderful promotion for a lost Thai film, a bizarre anti-drug commercial with Alice in Wonderland, a banned experimental film from Albania, Josephine Baker dancing the Charleston in wooden clogs, a commercial to buy your own Stonewall action figures, and many more!
