Reel Feel Media Arts Festival

REEL FEEL Media Arts Festival
Oberlin College, May 12-15, 2010
Various Locations

CINEMA 062, an Oberlin-based, student-run film and video collective, is pleased to announce the premier of REEL FEEL, a four-day film and media arts festival that draws on the collaboration of artists, students, and community!

From May 12-15, join us each night for a distinct celebration including visiting artist presentations, multimedia exhibitions,
media-infused parties, and student-curated screening programs in diverse and alternative art spaces including swimming pools, parking lots, grassy nooks, chapels, and other unexpected and surprising locales!

The festival kicks off with an interactive presentation by the renowned New York-based new media artist and curator Marisa Olson (pictured above). Olson will present a performative lecture in the Allen Art Building’s Fisher Galley at 8pm on Wednesday, May 12th, which will simultaneously feature sound and video installations and new media projects by Olson and an assortment of Oberlin College students. Visitors are invited to stick around for REEL FEEL’s opening party to enjoy live music, DJ sets, and refreshments.

The next three nights promise a variety of film and media experiences, and will conclude with a special closing party for festival
participants. All events are free, and all are welcome!

CINEMA 062 began in September 2010 as a weekly series that presents specially curated alternative, independent, and experimental media every Wednesday night in Oberlin, Ohio. The series takes place in the basement of Oberlin College’s Art Building, in room 062, and has featured a variety of unique screenings, including The Blazing World, curated by Thomas Beard (Founding Director of Light Industry in Brooklyn), From the Vault: Films from the Oberlin College Collection, Aaron Dilloway: Carte Blanche, Two Films by Yoko Ono, student-curated YouTube Playlists, and more.  CINEMA 062 is an initiative of CINE 323: Exhibition Practices in the Media Arts, a course taught by Brett Kashmere in the Oberlin College Cinema Studies Program.

Marisa Olson’s artist talk is co-sponsored by the Margin Release Lecture Series, produced by the Henry Luce Visiting Assistant
Professor of the Emerging Arts, Julia Christensen, and Sight Lines: Dialogues in Film and Media, organized by Brett Kashmere for the Cinema Studies Program, with support from the Blanchard Fund.
