Oddball Films
275 Capp Street
San Francisco, CA 94110

Hosted by: Oddball Films

It’s East Coast vs. West Coast when Andrew Lampert, of the Anthology Film Archives, goes head to head with Jeff Lambert, of the National Film Preservation Foundation, in a blind curatorial smackdown of epic proportions.

These two mega forces in the world of film preservation will enter the cinematic ring essentially blindfolded. They will be handed a specific theme and a specific running time in which to curate the best, most unique, and, yes, the most oddball screening program that the world has ever seen.

In addition to producing his own films and videos, Lampert has years of experience of film curating, such as the Unessential Cinema series constructed out of lost and orphaned films buried deep in the Anthology archives.

While Lambert has less public curating experience, as the Assistant Director of the NFPF he’s produced the absolutely essential Treasures IV: American Avant-Garde, 1947-1986 DVD box set and highly anticipated upcoming Treasures 6: Next Wave Avant-Garde. So, he’s no slouch when it comes to rooting out cinematic greatness.

If you’re in San Francisco, you’re not going to want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime cinematic showdown of awesomeness. Seating is limited, so please RSVP at the Oddball Films website.
