Retrospective Community Video Screening comes to Davis Square Theatre this June

About the event: With media production technologies changing rapidly, our community is overdue for a retrospective of the productions and visions created and expressed locally over the years. Get your Community Vault Tickets today!

Community Vault will showcase archived programs alongside contemporary media work and will create a dialogue between the past and the present, asking “What has changed?” and “What has stayed the same?” We envision surprising and revealing juxtapositions in screening the past beside the present. The final product will be curated into an hour and half screening.

Works may be screened either in full or in excerpt depending on length. Some of the selected videos being screened include Somerville Kitchenette, a sitcom from the mid 1980s produced at Somerville Community Access TV, talk shows about race relations from Cambridge Community TV to contemporary content including short satirical films and music videos from Northampton Community TV, to a short dark comedy film produced locally by Michael Epstein. The video screening will be a fun eclectic visual experience.

Other participating Community Media Centers that have submitted to both the ARCHIVE and CONTEMPORARY categories include Northampton Community Television, Cambridge Community Television, Somerville Community Access Television, Ashland Community Television, Easton Community Television and Stoughton Community Television as well as submissions from local filmmakers.
