Best Way for Local Filmmakers to Get Screened

Flicker Film Fest at Alamo Downtown

Now that the Austin Cinemaker Co-Op has gone all inclusive on us, Flicker mastermind Cory Ryan (or is that "mistressmind?") and her bimonthly minifest is the best place for Super 8 and 16mm short films to get seen. Part of a loose-knit national movement, Flicker Austin screens whatever you throw at 'em (more or less), as long as it's under 15 minutes in length and orginates on small-gauge film stock. Is this how D.W. Griffith got his start? Well, no, but then Griffith never had people serving Shiner Bock at his premieres as far as we know. Too bad for him.
