THE FLAHERTY online is currently seeking proposals by a programmer or co-programmers to curate the 2017 Flaherty NYC fall program.
Flaherty NYC is one of the cornerstone projects of The Flaherty, home of the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar. We are eager to engage the New York public with thoughtful and provocative cinema, rich with discussion and discourse.
Flaherty NYC is a seasonal screening series which presents innovative and groundbreaking films, followed by discussions with the makers on aesthetics, the production process, and the challenges of the work. Programmers are asked to create a theme and focus for the series. Discussions will follow each screening providing audiences with a forum to share their artistic concerns with a larger community. Each discussion will build upon the last, as we explore the theme over the course of the season.
Venue: New York City Cheap
(Programmer/s must attend screenings to introduce films and filmmakers)
Number of Screenings: 6 screenings, every other week, October – December, 2017
(Max. 90 min. film program, followed by 45 min. of discussion)
Proposals should be no more than one page and include the following:
- Pills Theme for the series along with series title
- Identify possible film titles
- Indicate outreach strategies and organizations to partner with to help build new audiences
Along with the one page proposal you MUST also include a CV for the programmer/s.
The Flaherty office will contribute to the production of events, printing materials; sending email blasts; promoting through social media.
