Incite has launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for the printing of Issue #4, their largest, most ambitious to date, which runs until early July.

About the Issue:

With Amos Vogels passing in April 2012, American film culture lost one of its most passionate and influential iconoclasts. INCITE #4, Exhibition Guide, pays tribute to Vogels legacy, most notably Cinema 16, a precursor to the flourishing microcinema network of the 1990s and a forebear of today's freewheeling cinespaces. In the age of so-called "participatory" media, in which people connect virtually using avatars and aliases to stream data on handheld devices, what binds these social cinematic sites, and makes them flourish?

While vertically mapping microcinemas of past and present, this issue also surveys the breadth of alternative media exhibition practice, from Dziga Vertov's agit-train and Bill Brand's metro Masstransiscope, to artists who use film without projectors and projectors without film. INCITE #4 seeks to engage the history of unconventional cinemas by zeroing in on those puzzle pieces that don't quite fit. Lost-and-found in the couch cushions and idiosyncratically dog-eared, these are the components of itinerant and expanded cinema practices that don't take place inside four-walled cinema chambers, on screens, online or, even, in a projector fashion. Hopefully, these aberrations will spur readers to reconsider the whole gambit of moving image exhibition.
