Film North

I program 3-4 locally made shorts (20 minutes or less) per screening at Bryant Lake Bowl Theater. Its a mix of anything and everything: narratives, docs, music videos, animation, and experimental. After each film is screened, the host, conducts a short Q+A session with the filmmakers.

Submit your short Film! 


Project 35

An eclectic mix of music from around the world, artist interviews, and wonderful randomness.
