Spring 2014 Schedule

  • Luther Price

    Luther Price: Poetry of the Found

    Date: Apr 6, 2014 7:30PM
    Location: Spielberg Theatre at the Egyptian

    Filmforum is delighted to host Luther Price, one of the pre-eminent artist filmmakers of the past thirty years.  But very little of his work has screened in Los Angeles. That’s because he brings the only copies and screens them in person, and that’s it. No DVD screeners, no Vimeo links.

  • Highlights from the Academic Ciné-club Belgrade, 1960-1980

    Date: Apr 27, 2014 7:30PM
    Location: The Spielberg Theatre at the Egyptian

    A remarkable and rarely seen set of works from the former Yugoslavia, highlights of the cinema organization that fostered experimental and underground film in Belgrade.


    Henry Hills: Rhythmic States

    Date: May 4, 2014 7:30PM
    Location: The Velaslavasay Panorama

    Filmforum welcomes back Henry Hills on his first screenings in Los Angeles since the late 1990s.  

    “Hills breaks down standard sounds and images, transforming them into perceptive alternatives, political critiques, and a search for occult, creative expressions that have not been said or explored before.” —Mónica Savirón

  • Gradual Speed (Els van Riel)

    Still Lives and Gradual Speed

    Date: May 18, 2014 7:30PM
    Location: Spielberg Theatre at the Egyptian

    Filmmaker Julie Murray (last hosted at Filmforum in 2010) was invited by us to curate a show for Filmforum, and here it is!  Featuring the Los Angeles premiere of Els van Riel’s Gradual Speed, combined with some classic works by Chris Marker and Bruce Baillie that we hope will provoke a conversation.

  • The Broken Rule

    Ericka Beckman

    Date: May 22, 2014 7:00PM
    Location: MOCA Grand Avenue, Ahmanson Auditorium

    “Like primitive cartoons, Beckman’s enigmatic allegories are filled with nervous activity and comic violence, sexual imagery and syncopated energy, perceptual game-playing and ingenious homemade optical effects.” --J. Hoberman, Artforum

  • Hiatus

    Ericka Beckman: Out of Hand

    Date: May 25, 2014 7:30PM
    Location: Spielberg Theatre at the Egyptian

    Beckman’s second Los Angeles screening presents a further selection of films and a new digital video from her important and highly original oeuvre.

  • Weather Diary 1, by George Kuchar

    George Kuchar’s Weather Diary 1

    Date: Jun 1, 2014 7:30PM
    Location: Spielberg Theatre at the Egyptian

    Filmforum is thrilled to present the feature-length first entry in George Kuchar’s monumental Weather Diary series.  Shot almost entirely in camera on Kuchar’s visit to Oklahoma in search of dramatic weather phenomenon, the video ultimately functions as a probing, idiosyncratic document of the humor, morbidity, and humanity of a “Bronx boy’s friendly, if somewhat freaky, foray into Americana”.

  • Will o' the Wisp, by Andrew Kim

    LA <===> AA

    Date: Jun 8, 2014 7:30PM
