UNXFEST | UNEXPOSED | Screen: Special Showings | Indy Week
This is a past event.


When: Sat., May 7, 12 p.m. 2016
Price: $15


Unexposed is practically the only game in Durham when it comes to the regular presentation of current experimental cinema. But judging from how hard Brendan and Jeremy Smyth work, you'd think they were awash in competition. After putting down roots in a space near Golden Belt and upping their programming from monthly to more-than-weekly in 2016, they're now debuting the first of three one-day film festivals this year. UNXFEST 1.1 includes a 16mm workshop with Erica Titkemeyer, live music from Curtis Eller's American Circus and Tescon Pol, catering from The Pit Authentic Barbecue and beer from Bull City Burger and Brewery, and two blocks of screenings of global experimental films, juried from a competitive pool. They include the premiere of Visions of an Island by Sky Hopinka, a Ho-Chunk Nation member descended from the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians. After these films screen at Unexposed, they'll be sent on DVD to other microcinemas around the world, carrying on the Smyths' ambassadorship for their medium. The festival returns in September and December. —Brian Howe
