Dear friends and CineVic members, in response to rapidly developing circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the following adjustments to our programming and services:
Our office is currently closed until further notice.
All workshops and events are suspended. We are exploring options to offer remote seminars.
No new equipment bookings will be taken at this time.
Our 8th annual Short Circuit Film Festival (scheduled for May 1-3) has been postponed. We hope to announce new dates, along with our CINE⚡SPARK Top 5, later this year.
Staff will continue to work remotely, so please feel free to get in touch!
Take care out there folks.
