Open Screen (as in "open mic") is a phenomenon happening across the globe that allows filmmakers to show their short works to an audience of fellow artists and film fans in a public setting. A production of local organization CInema Reset, the first New Orleans Open Screen will take place this Friday, November 15, at 8 p.m. at Hey! Cafe, 4322 Magazine Street. Films can be no longer than 10 minutes and must be in MP4, H.264, or DVD formats, although celluloid is allowed if you bring your own projector. All types of film are welcome. Filmmakers will be allowed time to introduce their work and lead a brief discussion afterwards. Arrive 30-45 minutes early to sign up. More info here.
