About Light Industry

Light Industry ( is a venue for film and electronic art in Brooklyn, New York.

Developed and overseen by Thomas Beard and Ed Halter, the project centers upon a series of weekly events, which are frequently organized in collaboration with an invited artist, critic, or curator.

Conceptually, Light Industry draws equal inspiration from the long history of alternative art spaces in New York as well its storied tradition of cinematheques and other intrepid film exhibitors. Through a regular program of screenings, performances, and lectures, its goal is to explore new models for the presentation of cinema. Bringing together the worlds of contemporary art, experimental film, and documentary (to name only a few), Light Industry looks to foster an ongoing dialogue among a wide range of artists and audiences within the city.

Since launching in March 2008, Light Industry has presented hundreds of shows. Our project is made possible through the support, financial and otherwise, of our dedicated audiences, and we proudly run Light Industry on a lean, no-nonsense budget, which means that donations of any size can make a considerable impact.

If you'd prefer to make a one-time contribution instead of becoming a Patreon subscriber, you can donate securely here.

All contributions are tax-deductible.
