There’s a relatively new film group that has set out to promote a ‘healthy, fervent film culture’ in Buffalo. Cultivate Cinema Circle (CCC) intends on stirring up the cinematic pot, in order to feature films that might not normally be widely recognized, or even screened.
Thanks to the curatorial efforts of Jordan M. Smith (Director) and Jared Mobarak (Artistic Director), a number of prized films will be shown in coming months, at various locations throughout the city. These films are meant to get moviegoers thinking about their immediate environments, and how they mesh with world topics.
CCC has announced its Spring 2016 lineup. Among the films shown are a few that have premiered at Sundance and South by Southwest in Austin Texas. Cultivate Cinema Circle has collaborated with North Park Theatre and Dreamland Studio & Gallery, and has been working with Public Espresso to implement the Coffee & Constructivism series.
The overlying film series features documentaries, classic foreign films, and recent releases, in keeping with Cultivate Cinema Circle’s goal of creating a ‘healthy film culture’ in Buffalo.
Following are the films that are part of the series:
“A Film About Coffee” Part of Public Espresso’s Coffee & Constructivism Series. April 16th, 1 pm at Mason O. Damon Auditorium at Buffalo Central Library
