Closing Night Screening and Party, June 15th, 2024

Close out the 20th Annual SouthSide Film Festival with a 7:20pm screening of FILMS IS DEAD! LONG LIVE FILM., a new documentary that explores the vanishing world of private film collecting—an obsessive, secretive, often illicit world of basement film vaults, piled-high with forgotten reels, inhabited by passionate cinephiles devoted to the rescue and preservation of photochemical film. The screening takes place at the Cathedral Church of the Nativity (321 Wyandotte St). ($10 admission, free with All Access Pass) Then, join us in celebrating another successful year at our Closing Night Party beginning at 9pm at The Gander Room (102 W. 4th St.).
