Fred Worden has been making experimental film since the mid 1970's. His films have been shown in the 2002 Whitney Biennial, The Museum of Modern Art, The Centre Pompidou, The Pacific Film Archive, The New York Film Festival, The London Film Festival, The Rotterdam International Film Festival, The Toronto Film Festival, The Hong Kong International Film Festival and numerous other experimental film venues.

Worden's films develop out of his interest in intermittent projection as the source of cinema's primordial powers. How a stream of still pictures passing through a projector at a speed meant to overwhelm the eyes might be harnessed to purposes other than representation or naturalism. Worden is a faculty member in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
