BAWIFM curates First Friday Shorts at the New Parkway!

  • 04 Mar 2016
  • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Parkway Theatre, Oakland, CA


Registration is closed

On Friday March 4, 2016, from 6-8pm, Bay Area Women in Film and Media partners with First Friday Shorts at The New Parkway in Oakland to screen an eclectic and exciting selection of recent short works made by women in the Bay Area that include drama, documentary and 3-D film experiments (3-D Glasses Provided!).  The screening will include Q&A with filmmakers, and is free and open to the public as part of The New Parkway's First Friday Shorts series. 

First Friday Shorts is a free monthly screening of short films from local media arts community organizations held at The New Parkway Theater (474 24th Street, Oakland) on First Fridays. These screenings aim to bring the Bay Area’s diversity in perspective, voice, and vision into the heart of First Fridays. The events showcase the talent from Bay Area media arts organizations, and always include live elements, such as performances or filmmaker Q&A. Founded in March 2013 by San Francisco State University professor, Jillian Sandell, First Friday Shorts highlights films by Bay Area filmmakers and community arts organizations that use media production as part of a larger commitment to social justice and community transformation. Short film, as a genre, not only challenges many of the traditional conventions and aesthetics of feature-length films, but is also an important sway to bring a greater diversity of stories, visions, and experiences into circulation.
