The New Normal is a semi-regular series of video conversations featuring critics, curators, filmmakers, distributors, and industry professionals discussing how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected their working lives and how they're adapting to the new cinematic landscape.
On today's episode, Steve Polta discusses his work as director of the San Francisco Cinematheque, the strategy behind the virtual launch of this year's Crossroads festival, the legacies of Luther Price and Bruce Baillie, and the material and ideological challenges of presenting experimental film in an online context. Finally, Steve and Jordan discuss some highlights from the Crossroads program, which runs from August 21 - September 30.
