Experiments in Cinema film festival (a Basement Films production – now in it’s 5th year) is designed to bring the international community of cinematic experimentalists to New Mexico and to expand our statewide conversation about movie making to include alternative cinematic histories. That is, As New Mexico imagines it’s future as a new media center, it is our civic responsibility as media makers, educators and movie fans to actively participate in, and help direct this sometimes anemic regional dialogue about all things cinematic. To this end it is the mission of Basement Films and Experiments in Cinema to nurture the next generation of movie makers and media theorists top become informed citizens of the world.

Basement Films travels to ATA to screen an international selection of un-dependent cinema from the first 4 years of Experiments in Cinema. This 75 minute program will feature contemporary experimental, underground and un-dependent films from Germany, Japan, Canada, Russia, Panama, China, South Korea, Spain, and, although no one is truly sure why, Texas!
