The Columbus Moving Image Art Review (CMIAR) is a screening event for local Ohio artists, filmmakers, animators and anyone who uses moving images as a creative art form. CMIAR was developed by two local moving image artists Nicolette and Matt Swift to bring together moving image works of all modes of production in a single black box theatrical screening four times a year as well as uplift moving images in all its forms in Columbus through one off screenings around town at local Central Ohio festivals. CMIAR has also had the honor to partner with other arts organizations in Columbus to screen local films at the Independents Day Festival, Columbus Arts Festival, The Columbus, Museum of Art and more.
The goal of CMIAR is to provide a quarterly screening event comprised of works from local Ohio artists working in the seventh art of the moving image. Since 2009 CMIAR has shown over 300 works by Central Ohio moving image artists, filmmakers, animators, software artists, and projection performance artists. The screening event will be programmed with submitted work. If you are interested in submitting a work for the current Columbus Moving Image Art Review check out the submissions page.
