Independent Exposure - A Monthly Microcinema Screening Program of
International Short Films, Videos and Digital Works

The Independent Exposure microcinema-screening program began in 1996 in
Seattle and was held every month until October of 2001.  During that time,
Independent Exposure presented the short film, video and digital works of
over 700 artists from all over the world.  The program also has been
presented hundreds of times throughout the International Microcinema Network
maintained in 32 countries and Antarctica!

2002 is the seventh season of Independent Exposure, and will be based out of
its new home at the 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco, CA with a
complementary satellite screening series at the Firestation #3 in Houston,
TX.  We want to show your work to audiences throughout the world, so please
submit your tape(s) now!
