X-MAS Under the Ground


minicine? is proud to host its 8th annual Local Film and Video Showcase featuring new short film and video works by area and regional artists and filmmakers. Throughout the year minicine? host cinema events which highlight new work by national and international film artists but, “This show is always a great chance to see samples of what is being produced in our hometown and is always one of the most fun.”-David Nelson, minicine?… All selections are under ten minutes in length with the shortest being one minute. The work ranges from narrative fiction and animation to experimental. Formats range from Super 8 and 16mm to new digital technologies… Shreveport entrants include: Morgan Thomas and Allison Dickson; Jett, Madeline and Robert Trudeau; Evan Falbaum, Hunter Carter and Danny Lachman; Chuck Loridans, Landry Debussey, Katherine Pabody, Chris Jay, Jen Wasson, Dusty Emerson, Jason Bass, Dan Garner and more. Also in this show will be several of the best single short submissions we have received throughout the year, including: Neil Needleman (Katonah,NY) and, Brian Farrelly and Jay Barba (Brooklyn) who have provided an irreverent Christmas spoof just for the event. In addition to this screening local artist Allison Dickson has orchestrated and curated an exhibit of “Mail Art” solicited and mailed in from a range of local artists. Ambient music will be provided by Jon Mackey and edibles by local food artist Libby Patterson… This screening will be held at Messinger Picture Studio, 1505 Marshall Street, Shreveport.
