Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Student Experimental Film Festival in Binghamton, also known as SEFF Binghamton, is an annual film festival in Binghamton, NY. The film festival features short experimental films made by students from around the country.[1] The film festival is organized and curated by Binghamton University students enrolled in Curating Film and Video, an undergraduate course offered by the Cinema department.

History[edit]

SEFF Binghamton is one of several projects that Binghamton University's Cinema department organizes to celebrate its experimental roots. The Cinema department was founded by Ken Jacobs and Larry Gottheim in 1969 and has been made up of many notable filmmakers and scholars over the years, such as Steve Anker, Stephanie Barber, Alan Berliner, Gregg Biermann, Daniel Eisenberg, Ariana Gerstein, Richard Herskowitz, J. Hoberman, Bill T. Jones, Mark LaPore, Mark McElhatten, Ken Ross, Rene Shafransky, Phil Solomon, Art Spiegelman, Phil Weisman, and Adam Zucker. Binghamton University organizes a bi-annual showcase of Binghamton University student-made films and videos. As well, it conducts a weekly Experimental Film series open to the public called BU Film Salon year-round. The Binghamton University Cinema department also conducts a Visiting Artist series throughout the Fall and Spring semesters, bringing in esteemed experimental filmmakers from throughout America in order to meet and discuss experimental film with the public and the student body.

Mission Statement[edit]

The Student Experimental Film Festival in Binghamton is a student-run film festival dedicated to exhibiting innovative student-made short films completed within the last academic year from across the country. SEFF Binghamton focuses on experimental works that challenge the conventional cinematic experiences, and strive to create a way for the student and local communities to bond and enjoy themselves while being taken to another dimension. The films you will view will create the most memorable and life-changing experience that you will never forget. With the help and guidance of Professor Tomonari Nishikawa, students enrolled in the Curating Film and Video course at Binghamton University have organized and programmed this two-day festival for your viewing pleasure.
