CUT & RUN kicked off its first screening in April of 2009 at the Artists’ Television Access in San Francisco. Following the show, it was decided that the Cut & Run would live on and produce various types of film screenings including a tour of microcinemas and other venues along the US West Coast, a guerilla screening on the SF MUNI rail system, and now a national tour of experimental shorts.

We are born, we grow, we experience a world of our own perceptions. We wonder who we’re becoming, we are influenced and we experiment. We become responsible for how we develop. We can change and reshape who we are and what we know by the powers we grant ourselves.

This current series, Evolution and Life of the Mind, Body, and Medium, focuses on cycles of minds, bodies, and filmstrips, with each work representing a perspective of itself as one, in contrast to the others. The program will include filmmakers from Spain, Cyprus, France, Germany, and the USA, with animated photo-negatives, appropriated 16mm trailers, film/digital hybrids, and other exciting, genre-bending, experimental works of cinematic evolution.

Films by:
Alberto Cabrera Bernal, Jo Dery, Richard Wiebe, Frederic Cousseau, Ray Rea, Sylvia Schedelbauer, Jodie Mack, and Brenda Contreras.
