Dan Streible joined NYU Cinema Studies in 2006 after nine years at the University of South Carolina. He teaches film history, documentary, and curating, and works with the Moving Image Archiving and Preservation master's program. He is the author of Fight Pictures (2008) and coeditor of Emile de Antonio: A Reader (2000) and Learning with the Lights Off: Educational Film in the United States (2011). Streible has also published research on the history of movie exhibition, amateur filmmaking, nontheatrical film, and moving image preservation. Since 1999, he has organized the biennial Orphan Film Symposium, bringing together archivists, academics and artists to save, study and screen neglected films. Additionally, he programmed the 2011 Robert Flaherty Film Seminar, Sonic Truth. Streible will showcase a sampling of shorts the NYU Orphan Film Project has helped preserve: animation, experimental, amateur, outtake, documentary, and other neglected (i.e., "orphan") films.
