The Mini Microcinema is dedicated to showing film/video/media that breaks from standard cinematic convention. We are a community that celebrates the art of the moving image, both contemporary and historical, from both near and far.
Our programming consists of work created outside of mainstream production and distribution systems, ultimately challenging Hollywood standards of form and content. The Mini Microcinema welcomes makers and viewers interested in exploring the potential of the cinematic medium.
