Exciterbulb is the Screen Studies program's ongoing avant-garde film series. Past themes for Exciterbulb programming have included queer cinema pioneers (the Kuchar brothers, Kenneth Anger, Jack Smith, Cheryl Dunye, Marlon Riggs) and French Modernism of the '20s and '30s (Jean Cocteau, Germaine Dulac, Jean Vigo). When possible, we attempt to program 16mm prints to be screened, and have also hosted filmmakers to speak about their work.

A monumental film, spanning 270 minutes, Snow’s experimental work is an artistic examination of the sound film as it explores what sound-image relations cinema makes possible. Its complete title is Rameau’s Nephew by Diderot (Thanx to Dennis Young) by Wilma Schoen, and Snow has described the work as “an authentic ‘talking picture’” in which “a word is worth 1000 pictures.”
