Shari Frilot in person!

Shari Frilot joins us for a unique screening and an engaging discussion about the festival process and the challenges of the experimental film programmer. Frilot, who has been a Sundance Film Festival Programmer since 1998, pioneered experimental programming at Outfest: Los Angeles International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival. She was also Director of the MIX: New York Lesbian & Gay Experimental Film/Video Festival and co-founder of the first queer festivals in Latin America: MIX Brasil and MIX México.  Frilot is also a filmmaker and will talk about the challenges and nuances of juggling film programming and filmmaking.  She will present a program touching on the history of experimental film within a wider festival context, including the Chicago premiere of Frilot’s Strange & Charmed (2003), a love story told from the point of view of two subatomic particles (KJ Mohr). 1990—2003, various directors, USA, ca. 75 min, various formats.
