So what if I told you that Denver has a place that screens locally-produced, independent short films, docs, music videos, art films, and an occasional feature-length film? And that these local film screenings have taken place on the third Thursday of the month since 2002? Would you be surprised? Or would you say, “That sounds like The Emerging Filmmakers Project.”
If The Emerging Filmmakers Project (EFP) is new to you, you’re probably wondering, “How do I get in on this?” Well, first of all, head on down to the next screening and introduce yourself. You can drop off a dvd or e-mail a link to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ve a got a small screening committee made of local filmmakers and actors. We can’t screen everything, but we look at everything. And we usually give feedback (if you want it) if we don’t screen it.
The EFP has been the home for Denver independent film screenings from new and established local filmmakers the third Thursday of every month since 2002, Screenings are held down at The Bug Theatre (3654 Navajo St., Denver 80232 – www.bugtheatre.org). The EFP is a great place to meet and network with area filmmakers, actors, writers, and many of the talented folks who work behind the camera. A spirited Q & A with the filmmaker follows each movie where you and your fellow audience members get to tell the filmmaker exactly what you think of their work.
The EFP also offers discounted acting classes and screenwriting workshops. Although film acting classes are taught in conjunction with The Film Acting Academy of Denver (www.filmactingdenver.com), The EFP supports the philosophy and work of every acting studio in town.
So now that you know a little bit about the Emerging Filmmakers Project, you should have your people put it in your calendar and come to the next screening.
See you here!
