Technically, it’s more of a film showcase. Hosted by CO LAB, a “working
community for artists and creatives,” the non-film festival will feature local filmmakers looking for more exposure in their hometown and offer them an opportunity to network with peers in the local film industry. For this inaugural event, 11 short films will be accepted to screen across different genres. As of press time, no shorts had been selected, according to Corey Clark, founder of CO LAB and co-founder of the filmmaker’s showcase. Local filmmaker Chuco Garcia hopes to get some good news soon. He submitted a short documentary on local Chicano artist Adan Hernández. Local filmmaker Jesse Salazar III submitted his short mockumentary The Box Boy. The comedy tells the story of a father coming to grips with his young son living in a cardboard box in their backyard. “I submitted because I just like supporting anything that’s local and involves film,” Salazar said. “It’s fun to see other local indie work and show my stuff — if it gets in. Any time I can interact and network with other local filmmakers, I’m down.” $5-$7, 5-8:30pm, CO LAB, 723 N. Alamo St., (210) 901-9902, pointwestproductions.com/notafilmfestival. – KM
