A film tribute with shorts of all sorts, humbly presented in honor of the late great collector, programmer and inspiration, Dennis Nyback. Drawing from their own secret archives, The Sprocket Society will assemble a two-part evening of films, all on 16mm, celebrating the spirit of Dennis’ legendarily far-flung programming. This memorial double header will include animation, surrealism, jazz, comedy, strange curios, rarities, some of Dennis’ favorites — and subversive and naughty stuff, too, of course. Almost anything goes! We hope Dennis would like it, and we hope you do, too. All proceeds from this screening will be donated to the American Cancer Society in Dennis’ name.
