About Films at the High
The High celebrates the art of cinema through a diverse program of classic, independent and recent international films. The film programs also include cinematic rarities such as silent films and movies that are thematically linked to the Museum’s current exhibitions.
Support for Films at the High comes from Turner in association with the Woodruff Arts Center’s Celebrate Diversity through the Arts. 35mm projection facilities in the Rich Theatre were provided by a gift from George Lefont.

About the Curator
Linda Dubler joined the High in 1985 as its first Curator of Media Arts (previously called Curator of Film and Video). Prior to joining the Museum, Dubler was the program director and festival director at IMAGE Film and Video Center, a membership based media arts center in Atlanta. Dubler received her MFA from the Cinema Studies program of New York University and was the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Critics’ Fellowship in 1980-81.
Under her leadership the High’s film program has become a destination for lovers of foreign, independent, and classic cinema. In addition to her work developing the High’s Latin American Film Festival, 100 Years of World Cinema (in coordination with the Cultural Olympiad) and other film series, Dubler has curated two video installations as part of the High’s Art at the Edge series: Eingang by Daniel Reeves (1989) and Buried in Light by Jem Cohen (1995). Most recently, she was given the Commitment to Film award as a part of the 28th Annual Atlanta Film Festival.
