The Columbus Film Council’s Near Monthly Screening Series (NMSS) is back at Brothers Drake with more award winning short films:

Another chapter from The Stagecoach Bar: An American Crossroads- an excerpt from Jennifer Tennican's CIF+VF Bronze Plaque winning film about the Stagecoach Bar in Wilson, Wyoming.

CIF+VF Honorable Mention award winner CLAY. CLAY is filmmaker Sushma Khadepaun-Parmara’s meditation on the understanding of life and death, the form and the formless. The film follows a young woman's journey through loss and letting go, juxtaposed with mythological images of Lord Ganesha, symbolizing detachment. Sushma Khadepaun-Parmara was born in India and now lives in Austin, Texas.

Citizen Zero (2012, 18 minutes) by Alexandra Stergiou is about the filmmaker’s father, his politics, and the seventh-eight year long journey he has taken to become a U.S. citizen.

“We love screening works at Brothers Drake Meadery. It’s a great casual atmosphere with a really great screening area and a high quality sound system. The NMSS allows us to show the really great films that we didn’t have enough screen time to show during the main week of the Columbus International Film + Video Festival (CIF+VF) in November. The CIF+VF is the longest running film festival in the United States.”, said Susan Halpern, CFC Executive Director.

Admission is free.

The Columbus Film Council’s Near Monthly Screening Series (NMSS) is an erratic set of screenings year round, sometimes monthly, weekly, or more. It’s when the CFC has a great film or set of films and an appropriate venue to screen them. Usually free or at very low cost, the CFC is committed, through its NMSS, to showing underserved and underrepresented media works. Films you can’t see anywhere else.
