Vidiots  Non-profit film organization and library. Since 1985! 🎬

We are heartbroken to learn of the passing of #JonathanGold, L.A.’s gem, a piece of our city’s beating heart, our love flies to his wonderful wife and children, and to the whole city, who loved him.

Happy Friday y’all, see you next week at our #dazedandconfused screening with our pals at @theatre_acedtla.
#soulpole 💨💨💨

Friday treat: @filmstruck pod featuring @bootsriley talking @sorry2botheryou, and our fav ever, Debra Granik on her latest LEAVE NO TRACE.
P.S. we ❤️ this Boots artwork by @gelgud.

We love love love Mira Nair’s @criterioncollection pix! Check them out on @filmstruck.

We loved talkin and watchin with these phenomenal #womeninfilm last night. Thank you @dilabar and @lacma for having us, and thank you to the always-amazing April and @thathagengrrl for the inspiring conversation. Long live the #videostore. #freshhorses
P.S. @thathagengrrl’s T is boss, #writtenanddirectedbybarbaraloden

Rest In Peace to the brilliant Shinobu Hashimoto, who passed at 100 and left behind a legacy of film writing like few others, pictured with #AkiraKurosa circ. 1960.

Guys, Viggo Mortensen in FRESH HORSES (on 35mm) elicited audible sighs at @lacma tonight. Huge thanks to everyone who came out, and especially to our dear friend and consigliere @dilabar and beautiful @lacma for having us, @awolfeful for being a forever champion of the arts and a beloved member of our Advisory Council, and most of all, @thathagengrrl, the lady who brought us all together with her beautiful “Last Great Video Store” piece (link in our bio). Please give it a read, then think about how you can be part of a movement to keep the culture of preservation, access, human interaction, and celebrating-hot-young-actors-before-they-were-stars alive. #Green

Hey L.A., we’ll be at @lacma tonight with @thathagengrrl and @awolfeful, talking about Vidiots and the importance of keeping video store culture alive and thriving. Then we'll time travel to 1988 with McCarthy and Ringwald in FRESH HORSES (on 35mm), which inspired Kate to write her epic video store piece "The Last Great Video Store." Check out Kate's piece on @theblcklst blog (link in bio), and hit for event info.

HBD to brilliant Matthew Libatique, AS-MFIN-C.

Can’t wait to add this new @kinolorber box set to the @vidiots library! Beautiful artwork by Wayne Shellabarger. PIONEERS: FIRST WOMEN FILMMAKERS pre- release screenings at @sidgrauman, @bamcinematek. Check websites for schedules and more cities.

Ahead of the screening, Kate, @awolfeful and @vidiots’ own Maggie Mackay will be talking video stores and keeping the culture of access and human interaction around film alive and thriving.
