You provide the film, we provide the projector, and the audience provides the cheers, jeers, or curious silence. Open Projector Night brings experts and novices together to share and review a diverse range of original short films, open mic-style. All genres are welcome from experimental pieces to animated narratives, so there’s no telling where the night will go. Films must be 10-minutes or less and are added to the line-up on a first-come, first-served basis until we reach a 60-minute program.

Leyla McCalla is a New York-born Haitian-American living in New Orleans, who sings in French, Haitian Creole and English, and plays cello, tenor banjo and guitar. Deeply influenced by traditional Creole, Cajun and Haitian music, as well as by American jazz and folk, her music is at once earthy, elegant, soulful and witty — it vibrates with three centuries of history, yet also feels strikingly fresh, distinctive and contemporary.
