Film Geek Weekend – Idaho Avenue edition

September 5, 2007 at 3:45 pm | Posted in Film Student Fridays | 2 Comments

You might remember our Film Festival post a little while back, which documented the otherwise little know Idaho Avenue Film Festival, now in it’s third year of offering the best student, amateur, and local short films.  I can still remember the festival’s first show, and I was delighted to find out it will still take place in the same house. Besides a myspace page, these submission flyers, and a video on You Tube, there isn’t too much info available about the film lineup, although we do know there will be free popcorn.  Only to say that this free film festival will take place this Saturday September 8th @ 7:30 PM, and don’t forget your lawn chair (since the films will screen in the backyard).

Frontyard Features ( is screening “Anchorman” this Thursday, Septmeber 6th @ dusk around 8:30pm on the Pershing Tennis Courts.  You’ll need to bring a lawn chair (or a blanket) to this screening as well, but at least it’s free. 

Webster Film Series ( presents “Summercamp!” on Thursday September 6th @ 7pm and “The Devil Came on Horseback” Friday-Sunday September 7-9th @ 8pm. Both this documentary about the secret lives of summer camp kids (former) and another doc exposing the hidden genocide taking place in Dafur, Sudan will screen in the Winifred Moore Auditorium on Webster University. ($4-6)

Learn about more films playing in Saint Louis this weekend –

Seema Enterprises ( premiers “Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag” on Friday and Saturday September 7-8th @ 9pm in the Wehrenberg St. Charles 18 Cine.  It’s a sequel/remake of Sholay, a film in which a former police officer and two criminals band together to avenge the murder of his whole family. ($10)

Reel Late @ the Tivoli presents “Ghostbusters” on Friday-Satuday September 7-8th @ midnight and Sunday September 9th @ 10pm.  And remember, if someone asks you if you’re a god, you say yes.



  1. Come to think of it, I’ve only ever once watched a movie while sitting outside. mmm, not that it’s very common.
    Saturday I’ll be in Columbia for Mizzou Family Day.

  2. um, every frontyard feature film (which has happened at least once every weekend this summer) is featured outside, in parks none the less. also, every cinemania series film has been shown outside. several venues put on outdoor films this summer. yes, it’s very common these days.

    i’ll be in columbia as well, helping Lauren celebrate her 21st birthday! party planned for you?
