Two Great Film Festivals Happening This Week!

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. Time to start planning your activities for this week and if you’re in or near Los Angeles or Ohama, Nebraska and love independent film, then you’re in luck. On Wednesday, March 7 the Omaha Film Festival kicks off and on Thursday, March 8, the Los Angeles Animation Film Festival kicks off.

The Omaha Film Festival was established in 2005 as “a way for the Omaha community to experience the artistry of independent filmmaking through the exhibition of new films by aspiring artists that are otherwise unavailable for viewing in the area.” The festival typically screens over sixty films from around the world with a special section for Nebraska-made films. Genres cover narrative features, documentaries, short films and animated shorts and the festival features regional and worldwide premiers as well as advanced screenings of films that have already received wider distribution. The festival has become one of the top teaching festivals in the Central United States and offers a myriad of panels, lectures and workshops for aspiring filmmakers. You can find a full schedule of events here or pick up an All Film Pass here. The festival kicks off on Wednesday, March 7 and runs until Sunday, March 11.

Here’s a couple of the featured films that will be screening in Ohama this week.

BPT’S Favorite Venues: The Woods

We ticket shows for the Portland, Oregon venue The Woods and I gotta say, I’m a little envious of Portlanders for having such a cool and unique venue in their town.

The Woods is located in a former funeral parlor in the historic Sellwood neighborhood in Southeast Portland. It’s a mission-style building built in 1929 and booker Jeremy Hadley is doing a great job of getting acts that fit the beautiful, serene elegance that this venue exudes. Their website describes the atmosphere as “part club-house, part secret society” and that “patrons will feel they have stumbled upon another world: candle-lit, eccentric yet stately.” Performances take place in a beautiful chapel area but there are also several smaller lounges and outdoor seating, including a covered smoking “salon.” They have a full bar and a simple, affordable cafe menu and it looks like they also have Karaoke, stand-up comedy, and movie screenings scheduled on non-musical performance nights.
