Carousel Microcinema is a roaming program of time-based media based in and built for the San Diego arts community. Emerging in a central accessible location every ten weeks or so, the Carousel Microcinema programs contemporary works alongside historical classics in the hopes of creating or re-enforcing associations that lead to deeper appreciation of avant-garde cinema, performance video, experimental documentary, conceptual films/videos, database systems, narratives, music videos — whatever media might intersect into a diverse and engaging program. If you make tapes, films, animations, or programs, I would very much appreciate the opportunity to view your work and hopefully find a place for it in a future Carousel Microcinema program.
Occasionally, I’ll be searching for something very specific. But it’s more typical for me to just pop a DVD in the deck, watch some unknown maker’s work and fall in love with it. So please do send me your gems? Thank you!

Due to budget constraints, Carousel Microcinema cannot return any media that it receives. So don’t send your prints and masters! .mov files, DV tapes, or DVDs only, please? OR – you can email me a link for download at cauleen(at)me.com. Also, all artists who are programmed by the Carousel Microcinema generously loan their work free of charge. Sadly, the microcinema pays no rentals or honorariums at this time. Each artists does however receive a copy of the published program notes- and a poster.
