Media City Film Festival 25th Anniversary
Spotlight Series


Three Fold presents a preview of moving image artwork by Tracey Moffatt, Ulysses Jenkins, L. Franklin Gilliam, Tony Cokes, Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, Cecilia Vicuña, Ximena Cuevas, and Tânia Dinis, selected for Spotlight Series, part of Media City Film Festival’s 25th Anniversary virtual edition streaming online February 8 through March 1, 2022. Three Fold will make links to all films available beginning February 8.

The Spotlight Series provides access to moving image artwork that deserves further critical attention and a wider global audience. It builds on Media City Film Festival’s Retrospective Section, which has presented hundreds of artists over the years, such as Yoko Ono, Michael Snow, Alvin Lucier, and others. This year’s spotlights are curated by Greg de Cuir Jr and Almudena Escobar Lòpez. 

In its entirety, Media City Film Festival will be streaming more than seventy films and digital artworks during the course of its month-long celebration, including work by Sergei Parajanov, Carolee Schneemann, Luther Price, Karpo Godina, Sky Hopinka, and many more.
