The Concordia Cinémathèque launches next week with a free 35mm screening of Akira Kurosawa’s R

The inaugural screening of Concordia Cinematheque is here! Concordia Cinematheque is a screening series that has been developed by Concordia students for Concordia students.

The first screening will be of Akira Kurosawa’s Ran (1985).

When: January 19, 2018, 7pm Where: Concordia’s J.A. DeSève Cinema

Admission will ALWAYS be FREE, granted upon presentation of a valid Student ID or Alumni Card.

Priority access will be given to current and past Concordia student and faculty.

Non-students will be admitted last, capacity permitting.

The Concordia Cinémathèque is a student-run and student-aimed screening series designed to showcase films from Concordia’s Moving Image Ressource Center (MIRC)’s 35mm archive. With one screening per month throughout the winter semester, and beyond, the Concordia Cinémathèque (CC) will aim to showcase a wide variety of films that would otherwise remain unseen outside of a classroom context (in which 35mm screenings are also becoming increasingly rare). The organization will also provide its participating students with a context, not unlike that of a student paper, in which to get a working experience of film programming and its connected disciplines (event planning, critical writing, hosting of screenings). It is our hope that, should the Cinémathèque’s pilot season succeed, the scope of the CC can be expanded beyond MIRC-sourced / educationally-licensed films, to include bookings of contemporary cinema or talks by guest filmmakers, alongside its original mandate – thus exposing students to the full range of responsibilities and skills necessary to work in professional film exhibition (i.e. contacting distributors, negotiation screening fees, coordinating guests, handling filmmakers, etc.).
