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.
