Luna Park Experimental Film Series

Spring Season


Check back for showtimes.

Sat, Feb 17 to Sat, May 12

Drawing inspiration from Pittsburgh’s famed amusement park, The Luna Park Experimental Film & Media Series celebrates play, inquiry, and the transgression of accepted boundaries of medium and genre in the moving image. Drawing on diverse curatorial perspectives, the series presents new and rarely-seen works by artists testing form and social, cultural, and political structures. LUNA 2018 features programs curated by Staycee Pearl, Audra Wist, D.W. Anselmo, Suzie Silver and Hilary Harp, with screenings accompanied by workshops and performances by established and emerging artists.
