Celebrating Canyon Cinema’s 50th Anniversary
August – December 2011
Canyon Cinema, one of the world's premier experimental film distribution centers is in the process of celebrating its 50th year anniversary. Undoubtedly, Canyon Cinema has become synonymous with Bay Area independent and experimental film. At present, Canyon Cinema has 320 members worldwide and distributes more than 3,200 films and hundreds of DVDs. As we have actively grown over the past fifty years, Canyon has chronicled the history of this unique genre.
Join us this fall as we celebrate our anniversary and remember our shared lineage with the Bay Area experimental film scene through a series of screenings at the Ninth Street Independent Film Center and a special program at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Special Support Provided by Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
