The events held in Washington, D.C. on March 9 and 10 both proved popular.
The National Gallery of Art presentation drew about 75 audience members and numerous in-depth questions on early video and preservation.
The screening at the DC Arts Center packed the black box theater. Reminiscence on resistance and video continued into the night.
Is this a sneak peek at 2015, which will see both the Videofreex museum exhibit and feature-length movie?
Below, more pictures from the happenings.
