Post on Special MCASD Event on 8/30 for SWC Photo’s Web site (from Neil)

This Thursday, August 30, I have a major event that I organized and curated at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD). I am hoping you can post the following announcement and links on SWC Photo’s Web site, so students and faculty alike can find out about the event on August 30. I’ve also included an image from one of the international shorts screening at the festival.


Post on Special MCASD Event on 8/30 for SWC Photo’s Web site (from Neil)

SWC Adjunct Lecturer’s alt.pictureshows Festival Marks its 10th Anniversary at Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego on Aug. 30
Curated and founded by filmmaker and MCASD Film Curator Neil Kendricks, this special installment of alt.pictureshows features more than 20 intelligent, inspirational, and thought-provoking short films guaranteed to challenge, surprise, and engage adventurous film lovers in search of a true alternative to the usual multiplex experience. The event runs from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets are $5 and free to MCASD members.
Part film festival and part art happening with a twist, the always surprising and innovative alt.pictureshows also showcases indie music videos by Nathan Gulick and Aaron Soto and a “greatest hits” selection of shorts from the event’s past decade, including award-winning cinematic works that got their San Diego debut at MCASD.
The event will transform MCASD’s Sherwood Auditorium and select gallery spaces into the supreme micro-cinema spectacle where Museum-goers are free to “physical channel surf” by dipping in and out rooms at will. Like previous installments of alt.pictureshows, this year’s roster of marvelous short films are arranged either by shared thematic concerns, stylistic approaches, or both in a unique night of small, yet powerful, cinematic wonders. For more information on the August 30 event, click on the following links:
