TIE was conceived in the mountainous western-slope of Colorado in 2000
by film curator, Christopher May – along with the support of founding Board
Members: Stan Brakhage, M.M. Serra, Standish Lawder and several hard-working
interns. In a vision shared by artists, filmmakers and innovative thinkers
from around the world, TIE joined the realm of the avant-garde while exhibiting
an invigorating and creative experimental cinema. Since its inception, various
TIE events have been held in Europe, South America, Canada and the United
TIE continues to explore the inherent visual artistry of experimental cinema, internationally, through intensive film festivals, curatorial research, exhibitions, archival projects, scholarly presentations, conferences, and other cultural interventions.
It is through dedication to the fine artistry of motion-picture presentation, combined with a soaring level of curatorial innovation, that TIE continues to provoke a strong dialogue with contemporary screen culture.
