The newly formed artist group Collaborative Project Inc. (Colab) was an important part of the independent film scene. At meetings and parties, aspiring filmmakers met and pooled resources; many contributed pages to the Colab publication X Motion Picture Magazine; funds from Colab helped launch the New Cinema, a short-lived screening room on St. Mark’s Place in the East Village; and Colab helped finance the Monday Wednesday Friday Video Club that helped distribute the films in the late 1980s and 1990s.
