Janie Geiser is an internationally recognized experimental filmmaker and visual/theater artist whose work is known for its sense of mystery, its detailed evocation of self-contained worlds, and its strength of design. Her films are "as extravagantly beautiful as they are difficult, and as allusive as they are elusive" (Cinemascope, Spring 2001). Geiser's films have been screened at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, Pacific Film Archives, the Wexner Center for the Arts, the San Francisco Cinematheque, Los Angeles Filmforum, and at numerous festivals, including six New York Film Festivals, the Toronto Film Festival, San Francisco Film Festival, the Hong Kong International Film Festival, and the Rotterdam International Film Festival. Her film The Red Book
was selected for the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress, and her film The Fourth Watch
was selected by Film Comment as one of the top ten experimental film of the last decade. Geiser's films are in the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art, the Donnell Media Center of the New York Public Library, and numerous universities, including CalArts.
