New York (NY) - Spectacle De Variétés is an eclectic program of women filmmakers and video artists from the US and Europe that have collectively screened and exhibited at festivals and museums around the world including: Whitney Biennale, Sundance, SWSX, Lincoln Center’s New York Video Festival, World Wide Video Festival, LA Freewaves, Cinemateket, Redcat Theater, Locarno Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival and the Los Angeles Film Festival. The program shows a broad spectrum of styles and subject matter that crosses the boundaries of cinema and media technologies. It is moving images from the experimental, dramatic narrative, fractured fairytales, social satire, and animation to the conceptual eco-doc. Spectacle De Variétés is an evening of the dark, funny and strange.
