Join the NYFVC for a screening of the must-see doc Here Come the Videofreex at IFC! Stay after for a conversation and socializing with us and filmmakers Jon Nealon and Jenny Raskin!
Here Come the Videofreex, an official selection of BAMcinemaFest, Full Frame and Rotterdam, is the incredible story of the birth of alternative media through the work of the Videofreex, a collective of renegade video journalists who started out on the counterculture beat for CBS News (covering figures like Black Panther Fred Hampton and Yippee leader Abbie Hoffman) and then defected to start the first public access television station in upstate NY. The recently-restored archival footage is extraordinary, as is the opportunity to understand the historical context and heritage of today’s citizen and independent journalists and media disrupters.
Following the screening, the filmmakers will be in conversation with members of the Videofreex, moderated by Ron Simon of The Paley Center.
NYFVC members free, but you must RSVP to NYFVCrsvp@gmail.com.
