“An eclectic, genre-busting festival”
—The New York Times

“The highest revelation-per-event ratios of any festival in New York"
—Film Comment

Bringing together moving image work from a wide range of venues—from film festivals and biennials to museums and microcinemas—Migrating Forms bridges the gap between the film and art worlds by presenting a diverse collection of programs in the common context of the cinema.

The festival includes new work and retrospective screenings by artists representing a broad spectrum of contemporary film and video practices.

This year's festival kicks off December 10, and the lineup will be announced in November. 

Programmed by Nellie Killian of BAMcinématek and independent writer and curator Kevin McGarry.
