Not only is Basement Films one of the few remaining first-generation micro-cinemas, supporting traveling filmmakers and hosting our annual film festival, but the membership are all artists themselves. From performance artists to musicians to flim artists members of Basement Films have screened, performed and presented their own work at venues around the world. This gallery should give you a small sampling of the members creative work.


As part of Experiments in Cinema v10.T36, we invited film artist Kerry Laitala out to Albuquerque to conduct her cinegram workshop. Workshop participants worked in the UNM dark room to hand expose and hand process high contrast 35mm film. The results of the workshop were projected as part of the festival.
