Selected by MovieMaker Magazine as one of the world's "coolest film festivals," the Disposable Film Festival was created in 2007 by Carlton Evans and Eric Slatkin to celebrate the democratization of cinema made possible by low cost video technology: everyday equipment like mobile phones, pocket cameras, DSLRs and other inexpensive devices. Through screenings, workshops, competitions, panels, and other events intended to educate and inspire, the Disposable Film Festival promotes experimentation and helps build the track record needed for a new generation of filmmakers to enter and change the industry. Disposable kicks off in San Francisco every March before traveling to cities around the world.
MOCA will be showing the Disposable Film Festival in our auditorium during normal operating hours. PLease note that special events and educational programs utilizing the auditorium may occasionally interrupt this screening. This film contains adult content and strong lanugage.
In 2006, the Museum of Glass in Tacoma invited Dale Chihuly to work in their state-of-the-art hotshop, with an amphitheater specifically designed to allow the audience to watch the action close at hand. Chihuly's residency soon became the idea for this documentary, as he set out on an ambitious program that would reflect the sum total of his work in glass over the last thirty years. Film courtesy of the Chihuly Workshop.
This film loops daily in MOCA's Rodriguez Pavilion next to MOCA's Dale Chihuly Chandelier.
