Ela Troyano, FF Alumn, in 48th Flaherty Film Seminar at Vassar, June, 2002

IFS presents:
The 48th Robert Flaherty Film Seminar
Friday June 14 - Friday June 21, 2002
Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, NY

This year's Seminar is programmed by ED HALTER, Director of the New York Underground Film Festival and contributing film critic for The Village Voice and other publications. Frances Flaherty founded THE ROBERT FLAHERTY FILM SEMINAR in 1955 to nurture exploration, introspection and dialogue about the art and craft of the moving image and its potential to illuminate the human spirit. This event celebrates the memory of Robert Flaherty and his spirit of exploration and innovation, artistry and vision. Works shown at the Seminar range from non-fiction, the traditional domain of the Flaherty, to experimental, fiction, and new media works. The unique "Flaherty experience" grows out of the screenings and the intense and intimate discussions that follow. Looking back to the roots of independent media and forward to the new auteurs of tomorrow, Flaherty Seminar 2002 presents an exciting and edifying spectrum of work from the world of underground cinema, nonfiction filmmaking, and experimental art. This year's guests include: Jem Cohen, Frank Scheffer, Jeff Krulik, James Fotopoulos, Elisabeth Subrin, Roddy Bogawa, Sam Green, Suki Hawley and Michael Galinsky, Kevin Everson, Robert Banks, Ela Troyano and many other guests and surprise films.
