The Triangle Filmmaking Community is joining with The Cary to present the Motion for Pictures Screening Series. This series takes a look at film and its impact on our modern culture. “No longer were fantastic adventures and foreign lands relegated to the imagination or static images on the page. By creating motion for pictures, the Lumière brothers, when they invented the early motion-picture camera and projector, fundamentally changed the way people experience and connect with the world.”
This series will show the best short films we can find which will hopefully broaden the audiences horizons and (at least for the filmmakers in the audience) inspires them to create something new and different.
Not Rated – contains some profanity and nudity. May not be appropriate for small children.
