Omnium-Gatherum

Curated by Jeremy Rossen

Portland, Oregon’s Cinema Project is one of the most intrepid venues for experimental film in the US, operating a 50-seat theater in a refitted industrial warehouse space not so different from Light Industry’s own. A collectively-run venture since 2003, they’ve brought local audiences an eclectic, international array of both historical and contemporary avant-garde cinema. We’re proud to host this special program curated and presented by Jeremy Rossen, Cinema Project’s co-founder and projectionist.

Omnium-Gatherum contains a selection of work from filmmakers whom I have had the opportunity to meet and correspond with over the years through programming work at Cinema Project. For this screening, however, everyone was asked to screen work that fell into one of the following categories:

- a film that was worked on but never finished
- a film that was finished but rarely or never screened
- something "funny"
- a film that they found
- a film made while a teenager
