Vintage Movie Night With Richard Hall

Takoma Park Community Center Auditorium
7500 Maple Avenue
Takoma Park, Maryland 20912

Local documentary filmmaker Richard Hall will share a selection of short films from the National Film Preservation Foundation’s Field Guide to Sponsored Films. From a silent 1897 cigarette ad to a 1950 animated pro-business propaganda film in Technicolor, these films were produced by corporations, schools, religious and political groups, and government agencies to promote their views to the public or their own employees.

This screening is presented by the City of Takoma Park’s “We Are Takoma” arts and culture series, in partnership with Docs in Progress.
