New Oberlin Screening Series

13 Apr

FOCUS ON THIS:
Beginning this Wednesday, April 13th, a student run program, FOCUS GROUP, will present weekly explorations of unique moving image artwork and experimental cinema. The series promises to bridge college and community by spreading its festive projections and ambulatory installations throughout the town of Oberlin. The arrival of spring will also be celebrated with several outdoor screenings. Watch for events featuring a broad range of genres, mediums (digital video, celluloid film, PowerPoint slides), and presentation formats, at such diverse locations as the Oberlin Cable Co-op, Tappan Square, Fairchild Chapel, and elsewhere over the next two months.

See schedule below for details.

ABOUT FOCUS GROUP

Focus Group is a roving, weekly screening series of student curated film and video programs.  Screenings take place on Wednesday evenings (unless otherwise noted), at various locations throughout Oberlin.  Focus Group was formed in February 2011 by the members of CINE 323: Exhibition Practices in the Media Arts, a Cinema Studies course at Oberlin College.  All screenings are free and open to the public, and themed refreshments will typically be provided.
