Cinemad: Light Industry by Cinemad
also available on iTunes under Cinemad
Today's podcast is with the founders and film programmers of Light Industry, a microcinema in Brooklyn specializing in avant garde and unusual film. They are not only human databases of art film history, they know the hurdles of how to run a film festival and a screening space, putting on great shows.
I met Ed Halter in 2001, when he was one of the heads of the New York Underground Film Festival, which he ran for over a decade, and I met Thomas Beard some time around 2005, when he was a film programmer at the avant-garde film fest CinemaTexas, which was in Austin. Thomas Beard speaks first, has a deeper voice. Ed Halter speaks second.
