We’ve learned about this interesting Screening Festival series, hosted at Katch and produced by Framework Productions. It’s happening bi-monthly in Katch’s beer garden, in an effort to build a regular networking community—the hope is to help connect people and ideas, and cater to the needs of Astoria’s excellent creative community.

For filmmakers, there is no fee for submitting, and film fans—there is no fee for attending! Look for happy hour drink specials, during these events, too.

More from the organizers:

This month we are featuring ten films of any genre and made around any subject matter. Selected film makers will be invited to give a 1-2 minute introduction of their film before it is shown. Screenings will begin at 8:00 pm but people are encouraged to arrive early and get a place to sit and have a good time before the screenings begin.

Much work often goes into creating films that only exist on a digital platform, resulting in a minimal impact and feedback from the industry and community. We want to give film makers and artists a platform to show their work and allow friends, family, and other community members to share in the work they have done.

Here are the submission guidelines:

  • All films submitted must be under 10 minutes.
  • Email links to a digital version of your film (YouTube, Vimeo, or Dropbox,) by June 30th at 11:59 PM.
  • 10 films will be selected by a panel of industry professionals, and selected films will be contacted as soon as possible.

Sounds like it could be a pretty fun thing! So stop by Katch on Wednesday, July 23 at 7:30 p.m. to view what will no doubt be some great locally-grown films!
