Millenium Film Workshop in NY
The Millennium was founded in 1966 and was incorporated as an independent, non-profit organization in May of 1967. The organization is one of the oldest media arts centers in the United States as is now celebrating its 40th year of operation.
From its beginnings the Millennium offered various programs and services such as filmmaking workshops, equipment access-which includes facilities for editing, screening and shooting. In addition, the Millennium has continuously presented ongoing film-talks and screenings in its Personal Cinema Series. This consists of mostly one-person film/video programs with the artists present to engage in a dialogue with the audience. We have always made room for regular open screenings in our schedule, so as to provide a public forum for younger artists and students. These programs became more viable and effective as we moved into a much larger space in 1975.
In 1978 we published the first issue of the Millennium Film Journal, a publication created to meet the need for a more substantial discourse on independent, avant-garde cinema. We have published 44 issues up to this point with such themes as Surrealism in Cinema /Autobiography/ Diary, Feminism/ Dream/ Animation, New Technology, etc.
The Millennium has been a model for many emerging organizations throughout the U.S. It has managed to execute a large number of programs and services and at the same time maintain high standards and low rates for public access.
