This celebration of the educational films of yesteryear — a co-presentation with Washington University Libraries’ Film & Media Archive — makes a return engagement to SLIFF with a fresh batch of shorts that will screen — for free! — at Stage at KDHX. Settle in with your friends for a relaxing night of drinks, kitsch, and nostalgia, all projected in old-fashioned 16mm. When not sharing selections from its vast trove of 16mm educational films, the Film & Media Archive serves as a nationally recognized center for scholarship, teaching, and learning. Founded in 2002, and part of Washington University’s Special Collections, the Film & Media Archive works with students, faculty members, researchers, and filmmakers to enable research of America’s great social and political movements using film, video, and other archival media.
