The inaugural Creative Collective NOLA combines screenings of four short independent films, talk backs with filmmakers and live music by local band Daria & The Hip Drops at 7 p.m. tonight, May 19 at the The Howlin' Wolf Den (907 S. Peters St.). A product of New York-based A.R.C. Productions, the event is intended to "shine a light on the wildly talented independent film community of New York & New Orleans." The four films are Harry Bartle's Rouler, Sonner, Nisa East's Holy Denver, Casandra Corrales' The Banana Theory and Samantha Smith's Si. Tickets are $20 (including two drinks) and available here.
