Scanners Festival to Feature 13 Fellows.

Scanners: The 2007 Video Festival, presented by The Film Society of Lincoln Center at the end of July, will feature work from thirteen Renew Media Fellows and will celebrate twenty years of the Media Arts Fellowships, with the program Renewable Resources.

Opening night of the festival will be marked by the world premiere of Edin Vélez‘ first narrative feature A Certain Foolish Consistency. In this multi-layered story, a young social worker’s struggle to break up with her boyfriend is woven into the fabric of New York City life.

On Saturday July 28th, Renewable Resources celebrates the Media Arts Fellowships’ twentieth anniversary with a collection of recent work by Fellows David Russo, Ximena Cuevas, Kathy High, Suzan Pitt, Hank Willis Thomas, Michael Paul Britto and Andy Blubaugh. The program concludes with a film by 2004 Fellow Helen Hill, to whose memory the program is dedicated, as she was tragically murdered this past January.

Emiko Omori illuminates the history of vibrators with the documentary Passion and Power: The Technology of Orgasm, co-directed with Wendy Slick.

Leslie Thornton and Leighton Pierce are included in the program LivingVoom, while Seoungho Cho has a piece in Optical Garden.

Scanners will take place July 27-29 at the Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center, in New York City. Please refer to the Film Society’s website for further details about the programs and screening times.
