Dear Cinema 10 Community,
We have been thinking about how C10 as a film group could begin to respond to recent events. These links will lead you to a number of films by Black directors and about Black life and issues that are currently streaming free:
- "Criterion Lifts Paywall to Stream ‘Daughters of the Dust’ and More Black Films for Free" https://www.indiewire.com/2020/06/criterion-collection-black-films-streaming
- Criterion home page (films linked at top of the page) https://www.criterionchannel.com/browse
- "Warner Bros. Makes ‘Just Mercy’ Free [through June] to Stream to Educate Viewers on Systematic Racism" https://www.rollingstone.com/movies/movie-news/warner-bros-just-mercy-george-floyd-protests-1009103/
When we return to screening films (timing still unknown), we will continue to include films in our season that confront race, racism, and inequality.
Holly Chambers, Coordinator, Cinema 10.
Thanks to Marianne Hebert for the links.
Cinema 10 has three main goals: 1) to bring films to the area which are significant artistically, socially or politically, but which generally are not popular enough in the mass market to reach our theaters, with an emphasis on current international and American independent films; 2) to increase cultural diversity in an area relatively isolated culturally and ethnically; 3) to increase the public's awareness of film as an art form.
Cinema 10 is supported by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
