At one time, this programming area showed monthly videos by independent and experimental videomakers from around the U.S. Since the Circle Cinema has opened, we have backed off of showing monthly programs, but still show an occasional feature video/film product. Our Media Lab area will be utilized again by the public to produce video artworks by using our equipment. We also have had interest from a couple of Independent Film Festivals and so this may prove successful for Living Arts.
