MOVING IMAGE FILM CO-OP
vintage ephemera * santa fe 1971-72
The Moving Image Film Co-op presented film screenings at various locations throughout Santa Fe New Mexico, 1971-72. The group, made up of filmmakers, visual artists and community organizers, had two focal points. The first was bringing to a local audience films not usually seen at a theatrical venue: experimental, documentary, animation, shorts, home movies and films from low- and middle-income countries. The second objective of the organization was that after paying expenses for film and venue rentals, the money remaining from admission charges would be given to a local non-profit such as the Women’s Prison Project, New Life Food Co-op, Santa Fe Community Press or Women’s Health Services.
One of the co-founders of The Moving Image, Ray Hemenez, kept copies of some of the posters and programs that had been created for the screenings. NNC is honored to be presenting these ephemeral works showcasing the actions of local cinema allies operating exactly 50 years prior to ourselves.
