Lifetime Fellow

Bruce Posner, filmmaker, Hanover

bruce posnerBruce Posner has worked as a curator and programmer of film, a lecturer on the history and theory of motion pictures, an archivist focused on film preservation and restoration, and an artist of film and photography. Prominent institutions that have featured Posner's work include Telluride Film Festival, Whitney Museum of American Art, Harvard Film Archive, Moscow International Film Festival, Sydney Film Festival, Dartmouth College, The Currier Museum of Art, and Pittsburgh Filmmakers Society. In 1999, working with 60 of the world's leading film archives, Posner began work on Unseen Cinema: Early American Avant-Garde Film 1893-1941, a film restoration and preservation project sponsored by Anthology Film Archives and Deutsches Film Museum. The widely exhibited retrospective has been hailed a milestone in the study of the formative stages of American experimental cinema.

In addition, Posner was commissioned by the State Arts Council to create an "Arts Car" of found objects. The Car was presented at the 2000 Celebrate NH Festival at Hopkinton Fairgrounds in Contoocook, the restaging of NH's proud presentation at the 1999 Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington DC.
