Experiments in Cinema is an annual, non-competitive festival (a Basement Films production) that celebrates artists’ film from around the world. This year we are celebrating our 14th anniversary with a host of unique screenings (100 films from 38 countries). EIC also features special lectures, workshops and a program of films made by New Mexico middle/high school students. Note that some of our programs are free to the public.
The goal of Experiments in Cinema is to bring the international community of moving image artists to New Mexico to then inspire a new generation of movie makers to recognize the value of their media-voices and create films in ways we never imagined possible.

Here Today, Gone Tamale: In-camera Magic with Eric Stewart and Taylor Dunne. Through the merging of illusionism and cinema, Georges Méliès revolutionized the “cut”. Using 16mm Bolex cameras, trick photography, and DIY matte techniques, this workshop will examine the filmmaking strategies and technologies employed during the time of Méliès. Workshop participants will collaboratively create a 3–6 minute 16mm film examining local food and UFO’s. The workshop will focus on demonstration and discussion of various mechanical processes such as: double exposure vs. bi-packing, in-camera titles, cross fading, single frame animation, creative lens distortion and more! All experience levels welcome! Please note that the workshop film will be screened Saturday, April 20 in Experiment 16. Taylor Dunne is a filmmaker, curator, and university lecturer based in Colorado’s San Luis Valley and the Catskill Mountains of New York State. She has an affinity for photographic processes, amateur film, the personal archive, and the history of the cinematic apparatus. Eric Stewart is a multimedia artist and educator. Working predominantly with 16mm film, his artistic practice invokes photochemical and darkroom processes to investigate landscape, place, and cultural identity in the American West.
