On Sunday, September 23, at 1:00 PM, the Athens Center for Film and Video will present the work of expanded cinema artist Roger Beebe at Arts West, 132 W. State Street. The event is free and open to the public.

Roger Beebe is a filmmaker whose work since 2006 consists primarily of multiple projector performances that explore the world of found images and the “found” landscapes of late capitalism.

He has screened his films around the globe at such unlikely venues as the CBS Jumbotron in Times Square and McMurdo Station in Antarctica, as well as more likely ones including Sundance and the Museum of Modern Art with solo shows at Anthology Film Archives, The Laboratorio Arte Alameda in Mexico City and Los Angeles Filmforum among many other venues. Beebe is also a film programmer: he ran Flicker, a festival of small-gauge film in Chapel Hill, NC, from 1997-2000 and was the founder and Artistic Director of FLEX, the Florida Experimental Film Festival from 2004-2014. He is currently a Professor in the Department of Art at the Ohio State University.

“We’re really excited to present his work. Beebe is a pillar of the experimental film community and his multi-projector performances do not disappoint. It will be a great opportunity for the community to see an alternative presentation of cinema and get to know the work of a phenomenal artist,” said David Colagiovanni, the director of the Athens Center for Film and Video and The Athens International Film + Video Festival (AIFVF).

The Athens Center for Film and Video is proud to sponsor the event along with the Ohio University Division of Film, Arts West and AIFVF.
