More from Mechanical Eye Cinema:

Mechanical Eye Microcinema was founded by Charlotte Taylor and Lisa Sousa, two film enthusiasts wanting to exhibit exciting work in Asheville. We are enamored with showing actual celluloid when feasible in an age when digital projection is ubiquitous, to keep alive the magical flicker of the film projector. To this end, we strive to project S8 and 16mm prints regularly, although these will be mixed with conventional video. We invite you to join us.

And here’s an event that Mechanical Eye is hosting on Feb. 14 at the BeBe Theater.

The film program is a mix of handmade, animated, collage, cut-paper animation, live action and even a glitched video game. We’ll be showing a mix of video and 16mm prints! Come prepared for beauty, humor, cuteness, romance, strange, and a little bit of sad.
