Once a month, Living Archive participants select films for the public screening. These screenings give participants the chance to exchange ideas with an audience, in addition to viewing the films on the editing table. The public viewings of rarely screened films give insight into the diversity of the Living Archive project, as well as into the Arsenal Archive itself.
