NEITHER/NOR

The 2019 edition of Neither/Nor will be announced January 2019.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presents Neither/Nor, True/False’s annual exploration of “chimeric” cinema, filmmaking that contains elements of fiction and nonfiction. This program is dedicated to scholarship and programming of vital movements that shift the boundaries of documentary filmmaking.

Neither/Nor screenings are free and open to the public and take place over the course of True/False weekend.

The series also creates a monograph, a collection of essays and interviews with the filmmakers, which helps contextualize the film selections. This monograph is available for free in various venues throughout downtown Columbia and is also posted online in its entirety.

If you have questions about the series, feel free to email Chris Boeckmann at [email protected].
