This event is part of the St. Louis International Film Festival.
This celebration of the educational films of yesteryear — a co-presentation with Washington University Libraries’ Film & Media Archive — makes its fifth consecutive appearance at SLIFF. Settle in with friends for a relaxing night of drinks, kitsch, and nostalgia. The films are all projected in old-fashioned 16mm using prints that were once shown in classrooms across the St. Louis area. As always, the archive has uncovered some new delights, and this year’s selections provide invaluable tips and tricks for optimal self-care, such as avoiding lice and improving penmanship.
When not sharing selections from its vast trove of 16mm educational films, the Film & Media Archive serves as a nationally recognized center for scholarship, teaching, and learning.
Free and open to all. More details
