This is a celebration of cinema. More specifically, this is a celebration on the many wonderful looks that cinema has. The many faces it wears to greet us and the many unique and poetic ways it shows us where beauty may reside.

❱❱ Art-House America Campaign

Criterion Collection and Janus films start a GoFundme campaign to assist art-house theaters that are struggling to hold on…

More than 150 independent movie theaters across the United States have temporarily closed to slow the spread of COVID-19. The Art-House America Campaign aims to provide financial relief to struggling independent cinemas across the country so they can pay staff and their essential bills and survive until it is safe to reopen their doors
Funds are intended to support essential payments during closure. Essential payments include those for payroll, insurance, rent, non deferrable loans, utilities, fundraising, and mortgages. Funds cannot be used for equipment purchases, future programming, or executive compensation. Donations will go into a general fund and then be distributed to theaters; donors cannot designate funds for a specific theater's relief.
