Film at KMA

We’re delighted to team up with our friends at The Public Cinema to present a handful of films to be shown at the KMA, free of charge and open to the public! This special film programming will include screenings of innovative works including Roger Beebe’s immersive audio/visual experience Films for One to Eight Projectors, Kevin Jerome Everson’s enlightening work The Surface Below, and premier experimental filmmaker Janie Geiser’s Double Vision. Flicker & Wow, an ongoing program of experimental cinema curated by Darren Hughes and Paul Harrill of The Public Cinema, will offer two separate events that highlight short films, plus a free, kid-friendly program of 16mm animated films. Join us!
