Ways of Watching: Tenth Annual Summer Symposium, July 24-25, 2009
Northeast Historic Film, Bucksport, Maine USA

For two days this summer on the coast of Maine in the 1916 Alamo  
Theatre, scholars, filmmakers, archivists, students, and members of  
the public will gather to learn and discuss how and where art,  
educational, and amateur films have been shown. More than 90  
presenters have shared their knowledge since the symposium was  
established in 2000. Our traditions include lively conversation,  
evening screenings, and a lobster dinner. The Northeast Historic Film  
annual symposium welcomes the following authors, archivists,  
teachers, and researchers who will bring forward the immensely varied  
practices of exhibition and viewing of non-commercial film. Please  
register by July 1. Program details, registration, and lodging  
information at  or contact
