The Integral Cinema Project
Pacific Grove, California
THE INTEGRAL CINEMA PROJECT is a Research, Production, and Educational Initiative Exploring the Application of Integral Theory for Cinematic Media Theory and Practice. The MISSION AND PURPOSE of the Integral Cinema Project is to develop and test a comprehensive model for Integral cinematic media theory, development, production, and distribution.
INTEGRAL THEORY is an all-inclusive perceptual framework that draws on the key insights of the worldâ€™s greatest knowledge traditions. The awareness gained from drawing on all truths and perspectives allows individuals, groups, and organizations to bring new depth, clarity, effectiveness, and compassion to every level of human endeavor â€” from unlocking individual potential to finding new approaches to global-scale problems (Integral Institute, adapted).
The POTENTIAL BENEFITS for a comprehensive application of Integral Theory to cinematic media theory and practice include: The creation of more powerful and effective cinematic realities that could potentially induce transformative states of consciousness, and stimulate shifts in stages of human development and the evolution of consciousness; the capacity to establish more creatively fulfilling, healthy, efficient, and cost-effective production workflows; an increased ability to target and reach desired audiences; an enhanced aptitude for comprehending and navigating the rapidly evolving and convergent cinematic media environment; and the fostering of a greater understanding of the cinematic medium itself.
The Integral Cinema Project isâ€¦the first mature application of Integral Theory to any domain of art. â€“ Sean Esbjorn-Hargens, Founding Director of the Integral Research Center
Thisâ€¦passionate quest to explore the further reaches of film theory and practice is inspiring and holds great promise. â€“ Jean Picker Firstenberg, President Emeritus, The American Film Institute
