Amos Vogel, who pioneered alternative media distribution "with Cinema 16", died in NY this week.

Amos Vogel was the founder of Cinema 16, a pioneering "Cine Club" in the US. He immigrated to New York from Vienna during the Second World War. Europe had many Cine Clubs, but there were none in the United States at that time, until Amos began screening experimental and social issue films at the Provincetown Playhouse in Greenwich Village. He also founded the New York Film Festival.
