On Friday, July 24 UW Cinematheque Director of Programming Jim Healy participated in an online webinar hosted by George Eastman Museum in Rochester, NY. The subject was "Cinema in a Time of Crisis" and you can now view the complete discussions below.
From the George Eastman Museum description: Cinema is an immediate, immersive, and communal experience. It is an exhibition of artwork tied directly to a specific place and time. As cinemas around the globe prepare to operate in a current and post-pandemic world, new challenges are posed. Curator of Film Exhibitions Jared Case and former curator Jim Healy, now Director of Cinematheque Film Programming at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, discuss the uncertainties of the current climate and plans for the immediate future, including programming and the safety of the audience. The discussion includes a recorded conversation with former Curator of Film Exhibitions Jurij Meden, now Curator of the Film Program at the Austrian Film Museum.
