What neglected film and video productions have influenced thought, opinion, behavior, and perception (or tried to)? What “pictures in our heads” come from moving pictures and sounds that were made to persuade?

Among the many forms under consideration are: political campaign ads, advertising films, television commercials, newsreels, newsfilm, religious pictures, sponsored and sales films, military productions, trailers, snipes, documentaries, essay films, activist and advocacy pieces, propaganda, culture jamming, stereotypes and counterstereotypes, intelligence work, indoctrination and training films, triggers, guidance and educational films, amateur samizdat, and related orphan films and media.

More than 75 presenters will discuss and screen rare, rediscovered, or recently preserved works. New productions, commissioned works, and technical presentations on moving image archiving and preservation are also part of the program.
