But unlike the campus, hope is alive. The FVC acquired a more manageable URL (filmandvideocenter.com), an electronic marquee is about to be installed despite those broken promises, and Kim's able assistant director, Kimberly Yaari, is busily trying to acquire funds for a first-ever publicity budget.
"Hopefully, eventually, without compromising the quality of the program," Kim said, "we can have a cinematheque that will be as available to everyone as it can be, that can maintain its intellectual rigorousness by presenting films that are challenging and exciting rather than just another entertainment affair."
