The Art House Convergence will meet in Ambler, Bryn Mawr, and Philadelphia this week during its summertime Regional Seminar.
Philadelphia native Garrett Brown, an Academy Award-winning cinematographer and inventor of the Steadicam, will speak to more than 120 attendees from art house theaters, film distribution centers, and industry enterprises across the country.
The three-day seminar – from Wednesday, June 21 through Friday, June 23 – will be hosted by Renew Theaters, Bryn Mawr Film Institute, and the Philadelphia Film Society.
The Art House Convergence is a nonprofit coalition of community-based, mission-driven art house theaters in North America. AHC holds its annual conference in conjunction with the Sundance Film Festival each January in Midway, Utah.
In the summer, AHC holds Regional Seminars in different cities across the country to showcase individual organizations and explore their communities.
On Wednesday, attendees will meet at Renew’s Ambler Theater to share their operations strategies, best practices, and insider tips during the three-day program of panels and workshops.
The conference moves to Bryn Mawr Film Institute on Thursday, where Academy Award-winning inventor of the Steadicam and Philly native Garrett Brown will address attendees during a lunchtime conversation. Brown’s extensive camera credits include Rocky, The Shining, and Return of the Jedi.
Friday, guests will visit the Philadelphia Film Society’s Prince Theater before returning to their hometowns.
