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.

A comprehensive look at a quintessential American musical instrument, the banjo, from its African roots to contemporary jazz and into the 21st century.

Narrated by Steve Martin, Give Me the Banjo brings together contemporary players—including Pete Seeger, Earl Scruggs, Bela Fleck, Mike Seeger, Don Vappie, Abigail Washburn and The Carolina Chocolate Drops—with folklorists, historians, instrument makers and passionate amateurs to tell the story of America’s instrument in all its richness and diversity.

Other Info
We're back at Brothers Drake with more award winning short films:

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

Silver Chris award winner SHACHARIT – A MORNING PRAYER. In Steven Loring's short film set int an Old World, ultra-orthodox synagogue in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, we intimately observe the daily sunrise prayer service - and hear the story of one congregant, an Hasidic rabbi, who traces his journey to this segregated life back to a McDonald's in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Silver Chris Award winner Crooked Beauty is a poetic documentary that chronicles artist-activist Jacks McNamara's transformative journey from childhood abuse to psych ward inpatient to pioneering mental health advocacy. It is an intimate portrait of her intense personal quest to live with courage and dignity, and a powerful critique of standard psychiatric treatments. Poignant testimonials connect the fissures and fault lines of human nature to the unstable topography and mercurial weather patterns of the San Francisco Bay Area. Crooked Beauty reshapes mental health stigmas through a new healing culture and political model for living with madness as a tool of creativity, inspiration and hope.

Ladies Knight
Sir Knightly wants to kiss the Princess, but she thinks he's a dweeb. When a fire-breathing Dragon arrives, the Princess finds him way 'hotter' than Sir Knightly, so she rides off with the Dragon to his castle. Against the advice of the Singing Sword, Sir Knightly sets off to rescue the Princess with the help of his trusty steed, Doofus. Ladies Knight is a fairy-tale musical featuring five original musical numbers, including the show-stopper 'She's Not Into You.'

Finding My Magic
Finding My Magic is an award-winning educational resource created to assist young children (aged 4 to 11 years) to build confidence and communication skills, and to develop an awareness of their rights and responsibilities. Inspired by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and Save the Children Australia. Finding My Magic was created by psychologist, Eve Ash and features Australian Olympic champion, Cathy Freeman OAM.

China Fantasia
An animation from China based on traditional Chinese instruments and music.

My Home
My Home is the story of a persistent and self-indulgent beaver who is not a very good neighbor. That is, until he meets a precocious no-nonsense turtle.
In Oneida society, the oral tradition is very important and represents the soul of the Oneida people. From generation to generation children are taught about their Oneida traditional beliefs from an Elder who has the ability to speak with meaning and confidence.

Gateway Film Center (map)

Columbus, Ohio, USA 43215
Other Info
PLANEAT is the story of three men's life-long search for a diet, which is good for our health, good for the environment and good for the future of the planet. With an additional cast of pioneering chefs and some of the best cooking you have ever seen, the scientists and doctors in the film present a convincing case for the West to re-examine its love affair with meat and dairy. The film features the ground-breaking work of Dr. T Colin Campbell in China exploring the link between diet and disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn's use of diet to treat heart disease patients, and Professor Gidon Eshel's investigations into how our food choices contribute to global warming, land use and oceanic deadzones.

With the help of some innovative farmers and chefs, PLANEAT shows how the problems we face today can be solved, without simply resorting to a diet of lentils and lettuce leaves.

Planeat is the winner of the Central Ohio Green Education Fund (COGEF) Award for 2012.

Admission is just $5. Parking is available for $1 in the Gateway Parking Garage.

Cloudburst

On Friday November 16, 2012 the Columbus International Film + Video Festival, in partnership with Stonewall Columbus, will present the award winning film Cloudburst. Starring Oscar®-winning actresses Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker as Stella and Dot, an aging couple who escape from a nursing home in Maine and drive to Nova Scotia on a quest to be legally married. Stella and Dot have been together for 31 years and have faithfully accompanied one another through life's ups and downs. Now in their seventies, Stella is hard of hearing and Dot is legally blind. Dotty's prudish granddaughter, Molly (played by Genie Award-winner Kristin Booth), decides the best place for Dot is a nursing home that will provide all the necessities. This forces Stella and Dot to make a bold decision: they will leave their hometown and make their way to Canada, where same-sex marriage is legal. It's a last-gap bid to stay together. En route to Canada, they pick up a young hitchhiker, Prentice, played by newcomer Ryan Doucette. A small-town boy turned modern dancer, he is returning to Nova Scotia to visit his dying mother. Despite his bravado, Prentice is a confused and wounded soul who has much to learn from Stella and Dot as they wage their own unexpected battle – after three decades, can they keep their family together?

The screening takes place in the Canzani Center Auditorium on the campus of the Columbus College Of Art & Design, at the corner of Cleveland Avenue and Gay Street (at the south base of the 10-story ART sculpture). Parking is free in CCAD lots. While the screening starts at 7.30 p.m., we invite our audience to attend a free exhibition and reception at the Canzani Center Gallery at 6.30 p.m. The exhibition features works by Donald Moffet. An original member of ACT UP and the 1980s AIDS activist collective Gran Fury, Moffett has been—and continues to be—a persistent and influential presence on the New York art scene. His poetic, provocative, and at times humorous paintings—from landscape and nature to politics and history—fearlessly address issues that resonate today such as the rights of openly gay men and women to serve in the military, the aesthetics of gay subcultures, and the rampant scandals that mar our political landscape. www.ccad.edu/ccad-campus/campus-map.

Admission to the Gallery is free. Admission to the screening of “Cloudburst” is free for students with id, Stonewall members, CIFVF members, CCAD staff, Trailblazers. For all others a $5 donation is encouraged.
