The 2012 New Orleans Film Festival presents Cinema Reset, a special exhibition of experimental film and new media. Cinema Reset’s multimedia artists and moviemakers offer a random, rotating, and constantly evolving stream of cinematically inspired content over a three-month exhibition. Screenings and educational programs are presented online, in-gallery, and at the Freeport-McMoRan theater in the Contemporary Arts Center.

Light From Los Angeles, curated by The Dublab (stream begins: Monday, October 15, 2012 – 1PM): Light From Los Angeles is a document of vibrant creativity from an inspiring city. The Dublab presents an audio/visual snapshot of artists making bright waves. They have invited their favorite LA musicians to each contribute an original song with an accompanying film shot exclusively on Digital Harinezumi cameras. These compact devices perfectly capture the magic light of Los Angeles. The resulting music videos are a modular film experience that can be reshuffled for each viewing.
Civic Statues Unfrozen for One Half Hour by Anne Bray (stream begins: Monday, October 15, 2012 – 3PM): Clothed Women and Unarmed Men by Anne Bray: Sixteen recent short international videos presented as a diptych for Los Angeles. This video diptych asks viewers to watch two videos at once. Each side evolves at its own rate, always aware of its neighbor. Over a turbulent half hour, the total sequence rides like a rollercoaster.
