About the Lecture
The Roxie is the oldest continuously running theater in the United States and the second oldest in the world, opening at its current location in San Francisco’s Mission District in 1909. With film screenings and events 364 days per year, the Roxie promotes and preserves experimental art cinema, repertory movies, unusual foreign films, and other rare and daring gems. In 2008 the Roxie became a nonprofit organization, committed to remaining a critical and historical center for film, culture, and contemporary practices in the direct community and beyond. Discussing the Roxie’s work is Christopher Statton, Executive Director; Mike Keegan, Director of Programming; Catie Roads Redhouse, Filmmaker and Membership Director; and Megan Wilson, Artist and Non-profit Development & Management.

About the Radical Directing Lecture Series
In fitting with SFAI’s pioneering presence in experimental film, this series emphasizes cinematic approaches that veer from traditional narratives, as well as the conceptual frameworks filmmakers use to cinematically articulate characters, plot, subtext, tension, and drama. The series is organized to complement a course taught by Lynn Hershman Leeson for SFAI’s Film program.
All Radical Directing lectures begin at 7:30 pm in the Lecture Hall on SFAI’s 800 Chestnut Street campus. For a complete schedule of SFAI's lectures and events, please visit www.sfai.edu/events
SFAI’s exhibitions and public programs—a component of which is the Radical Directing Lecture Series—are supported in part by the Grants for the Arts/San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund.
