Description

The Lexington Film League Showcase at 21c will present monthly programs that reflect the richness and diversity of contemporary artistic film and video practice in the region and the world. The programs will include new works made by young artists, important works made by living artists, and historical works made by marginalized artists. The programs will include works made in different media, including single-channel films and videos, as well as performances. The programs will also include works that reference different genres, including abstract, non-narrative, documentary, and fictional works. The primary focus of the Showcase will be to introduce Lexington audiences to important film and video works that are not currently available in the area. The ultimate goal of the Showcase is to promote Lexington and 21c as a venue for artistic film and video work.
