The Hideout

Admissions: $15 (21+)

Join us as we officially celebrate our 5th annual CFA Media Mixer! CFA’s annual video remix-centric benefit returns with an impressive lineup of video premieres, performances, DJs and raffle prizes. Michelle Puetz and Peter Margasak will be co-masters of ceremonies, with sounds from DJ Benny Backwash. At the heart of this fabulously fun event is the PREMIERE of 3 video collaborations made entirely with footage from CFA.

The way this works: CFA asks three artists to make a short video piece using footage from CFA’s collections and then to turn that piece over to a sound artist/musician who records a score specifically for the piece.  In other words:

•       CFA footage x 3 filmmakers x 3 audio artists
•       Shake them up
•       Throw 3 magical sight and sound creations up on the screen

This year’s talented line-up includes (filmmakers listed first):

Melika Bass + Coppice
Jon Cates + Jeff Kolar
Andrew Mausert-Mooney + Bobby Conn

(more on this year’s artists here)
