    Tonight: the Announcement of the Louisville Innovative Film Alliance and local film showcase

    For a long time, we had the Louisville Film Society. They were fantastic. They used to show cool films at 21C and were open to the public. Eventually they grew enough to get their own space, where they continued to show exciting and unfamiliar films to Louisville’s enthusiasts. And then… I honestly don’t know. I believe they are still in existence, but their presence is murky. There has been a gap in local film prominence which, frankly, has concerned me.

    Luckily there is a new solution, and it is making its presence known tonight. It is the Louisville Innovative Film Alliance, a collective meant to bring awareness to all the greatness happening in local film. The official announcement is tonight at an event featuring a compendium of local films, headlined by the premiere of D.M. Meyer’s The Early Year of a Statue. Here are the offerings of the night (film descriptions borrowed from Facebook):

    -The Hidden Truth, Harley Morris: “A narrative of a man coming to terms with the evolution of his dark world paradigm.”
    -Sadie, Stephen Blair: “Everett is a man in the darkest moment of his life. Sadie is a woman that can bring light to the shadows, but will he want to see what he is hiding there.”
    -AdalayadAngel, Keith Franklin: “Therapy.”
    -Escena, Dane Becker: “With an action movie sentimental, Escena will - by its end - blur the lines of what is real. . . And what is just a scene.”
    -The Early Year of a Statue, D.M. Meyer: “Will realizes now that he should have never told his parents his secret. With a new beginning all that a head of him is the road, to be shared with his new-found friend Ben. But does danger lie around the corner?”

    The evening will conclude with a Q&A session.

    The event starts at 7:30 and will take place at OPEN, located at 2801 S. Floyd Street. Admission is free but a $5 donation is encouraged. Complete details can be found at the Facebook event page.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
