kdhx tv logoJust because the next couple weekends in Saint Louis will be jam packed with outdoor Festivals, midnight bike-wrangling cowgirls and boys, and lord only knows what else on Labor Day weekend, doesn’t mean you need to come up short this week.  For those inclined to stay indoors due to inclement weather (or just us film geeks), the Webster Film Series and KDHX have teamed up for a local filmmaker showcase screening of sorts.  Under the moniker of “Coming Up Shorts” and playing this Thursday, August 23rd @ 8 PM in the Winifred Moore Auditorium (where else?), this is how the Film Series describes the show:

KDHX Community Media presents the results of their filmmaking competition,
Coming Up Shorts. The program showcases the 3-minute videos made by local
media artists with KDHX TV providing the selected artists with all the
resources necessary to make their shorts, trailers or a stand-alone short
films. These videos will screen on KDHX TV as “Bumpers” between their scheduled

A short list of the shorts to be exhibited includes 52nd City favorite Bodybag Man“, and reveals that you can submit your own bumper short to KDHX TV (that’s Channel 21 for Charter Cable subscribers).  Tickets should set you back about $5, which you can buy in advance or at the door (more information on the WFS site).

And should the warm weather continue over this weekend, why not take a break from the heat by checking out “Syndromes and a Century“, this week’s WFS offering.  You’ll have a good opportunity to check it out between events Saturday or on Sunday afternoon (August 25-26), since you’ve probably already made plans for Friday night ;)  And don’t forget to check back Friday for more information on film screenings around town.
