Double-sided handbill for programming of Spring Film Series by the Experimental Film Group at the University of Colorado from February to May 1967, promoting screenings of work by Kenneth Anger, Jud Yalkut, Mike Kuchar, Andy Warhol, Stan Brakhage,
a lecture by Jonas Mekas, and many other more obscure filmmakers.
The Experimental Cinema Group, now known as the First Person Cinema Group, was started in 1955 by Carla Selby and Gladney Oakley who were soon joined by Bruce Conner and Stan Brakhage. The group is now carried forward by Don Yannacito, who has helped with programming for the group since the 1960s. The Experimental Cinema Group hosted many of the first screenings of Brakhage’s early works and works from many more titans of underground cinema. During this period, Boulder and the Experimental Cinema Group was one of the few places one could see these movies outside of New York.
