Thomas Edison Media Arts Consortium: Selections from the 2020 Film Festival

View Upcoming Films

Streamed from August 26 through September 1

Featured are 12 titles from this year’s festival, an international celebration of the short film. Founded in New Jersey in 1981 and open to all, the festival was named for Thomas Edison’s West Orange film studio, the first-ever production facility for motion pictures. "I am experimenting upon an instrument which does for the eye what the phonograph does for the ear." Special thanks go to the consortium’s executive director, Jane Steuerwald.
