Think it's too difficult to find a nice, affordable venue at which to screen your work? Or maybe you're of the movie going persuasion and think there's no place to see great locally made independent film? Hogwash! Cinema Lounge provides local filmmakers with a cool, intimate venue to screen their latest work and film enthusiasts a spot to come and see the best indie shorts coming out of Minnesota today. All while enjoying beer, wine, and great food. The best part? Admission is FREE!
The Lounge: Short Films. Indie Filmmakers. Hell yes. Cinema Lounge happens the third Wednesday of each month at the Bryant Lake Bowl Theater. Cinema Lounge programmer Ausitn Anderson puts together a lineup of 4-5 locally made shorts (20 minutes or less) per screening. We mix it up with anything and everything: narratives, docs, music videos, animation, and experimental. After each film is screened, you meet the mind behind the film, as host Josh Carlon conducts a short Q+A session with the filmmakers.
The Mission: You + Clounge = Sweet Cinematic Bliss. Cinema Lounge provides a venue for filmmakers who normally wouldn't have a place to screen their work, whether it's due to a shoestring budget or edgy, alternative content preventing them from finding a home at the local megaplex. Plus, involving the audience with the Q+A allows the filmmakers to get genuine feedback from discerning viewers. Finally, it's a hangout for filmmakers, producers, screenwriters, and anyone to network and meet like-minded folks, possibly forming contacts for future projects.
