FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 26, 2016
LOCAL INDIE MOVIES TO BE SCREENED AT CINE-RAMA CHATTANOOGA, TN
ChattaMovies, a local moviemaker group and earLuminators, a local production group will be co-hosting two “Open Screen Night” events at Cine-Rama at 7 p.m. on Saturday, August 13, 2016 and Saturday September 10, 2016
Open Screen Night is a screening of an hour and a half of independently-produced short works including those submitted by movie makers from Chattanooga and the surrounding region. Admission for the event is FREE. The three Open Screen Nights will be held throughout the year. The first was held in March of this year. The next two will be August and September at the Cine-Rama . Many genres are represented in the mix of entries, from music videos and comedies, to documentaries and dramas.
The works voted as Audience Favorites at the three Open Screen Nights in Chattanooga will be screened at a “Best of Open Screen Night” event held at a major Theatre in Chattanooga.
Jim Smith, EarLuminator producer and one of the event’s organizers, says he thinks of Open Screen Night as an “open mic night” for indie movie makers. “We don’t jury the submissions. So everyone’s film has a chance to be seen. There are some very talented people submitting their work, and a great way to support the local indie artist than to watch their works being screened.”
