Join the Sprocket Society for a marathon celebration of 16mm film’s 100th anniversary, featuring favorites and rarities from their vault. Teetering stacks of reels will supply a free-form smorgasbord of shorts: comedy, music, animation, drama, silent special effects epics, experimental wonders, documentaries, oddities, legendary hits, forgotten obscurities, and more. All shown from 16mm film prints, of course!

Introduced by Kodak in 1923, the 16mm format democratized cinema by making it affordable and portable. Embraced by hobbyists, professionals, and artists alike, 16mm film empowered a multi-decade explosion of creative exploration and programming that transformed every facet of cinema.

Tonight’s program celebrates this century of rich history with a wildly eclectic sampling of titles made with, primarily distributed on, or preserved thanks to 16mm film.
