Programming director Jim Healy discusses how the free campus film series is evolving.
UW-Cinematheque’s spring season of art-house film screenings kicks off on January 18 at Vilas Hall with Blake Williams’ Prototype, which will take advantage of Cinematheque’s recently installed 3-D screening equipment. It won’t be Cinematheque’s first 3-D screening, but it will be a debut of sorts for new 3-D gear that recently became a permanent piece of the program’s home screening room.
Ahead of the new Cinematheque season—which also features a visit from low-budget filmmaker Andrew Bujalski, a brief series of African-American cinema milestones, and actor/podcaster Kulap Vilaysack appearing to share her new documentary Origin Story—programming director Jim Healy sat down with Tone Madison contributor Grant Phipps to talk about what’s ahead for the series and how 3-D filmmaking is changing.
