From Thursday, July 21 through Saturday, July 23, 2016, the rich amateur and non-theatrical moving image history of New England will be the focus of the 2016 Northeast Historic Film Summer Symposium. The NHF Summer Symposium is a congenial multi-disciplinary gathering devoted to the history, theory, and preservation of amateur and nontheatrical moving images. Presenters typically have 30-45 minutes in which to deliver their papers and engage in discussion. We do not run concurrent sessions, and participants are expected to attend all presentations and engage with colleagues in discussion of work presented over the two and a half days of the symposium.
NHF participates in and hosts many different types of activities. We hold events at the Alamo Theatre and rent the space to other groups for their own performances. We also venture to other locations to give presentations. Please take a look and see our slate of events. We will continue to add more as they are scheduled.
