Sit back. Relax. Forget about that studio project, art history paper or work deadline for a few hours. Every Saturday at 3:30 PM during the academic year in East Building, Room 203, movie-goers and film lovers can settle in for the KCAI Screening Room, a program featuring a student-curated film series presented by the photography and digital filmmaking department.
KCAI Screening Room's mission is to raise appreciation for cinema and help build a cross-departmental community where students can create dialogues about time-based media and be exposed to new or important films outside of the studio setting. The screenings and the events are open to all KCAI students and faculty as well as to the public.The group aims to build a sense of cohesion among students at KCAI and create a connection between larger KCAI community.
Spring 2015's curatorial panel includes Emma Provin (junior, digital filmmaking), Noah Geiger (sophomore, sculpture), Clark Topjon (junior, digital filmmaking), Kendall Brush (junior, digital filmmaking), and Simon Williams (sophomore, digital filmmaking).
Each screening will begin with an informal discussion of the film's importance and end with an opportunity for further conversation. Films will range from the critically acclaimed to cult fare. KCAI SR screenings are open to KCAI students, faculty and staff. Screenings are every Saturday at 3:30 PM in East Building, Room 203.
All films are shown on Saturday at 3:30 PM in East Building, Room 203.

Titles may change due to availability or scheduling conflicts. Our curatorial panel will attempt to choose comparable titles, but all of the films are chosen based on cultural, cinematic, or historical importance and are worth checking out. We will always give as much advanced notice as possible when title changes must occur.
