New year, new place

This year the live screening event will be hosted at a new location. Bye bye dirty vacant storefront that we've used for the last three years and heeeeelloooooo beautiful new space. We're moving the event to the St. Clare Theater on the North Side! It's going to be very refreshing to have a change of scenery this year.

The St. Clare Theater is located at 860 N. Salina St - next to the Asumption Church. There is a moderate size parking lot in front of the theater, as well as plenty of street parking along N. Salina and neighboring streets.


Let's talk CoLoR

We weren't sure it could be done, but it's happening. We actually found newly produced Super 8 color film! Sure it has a different finish than what we've used in the past, but it's still pretty awesome. This year we'll be able to offer registered filmmakers the opportunity to use color film or black & white. We're happy. Hope you are too.

If you are curious how this new color film looks, watch this test video:
