On August 07th, Filmmakers and film-lovers unite. Join us for the third Open Projector Night Showcase, an annual celebration of independent film, hosted by filmmaker Joel Potrykus (Buzzard). We’re bringing back our favorite short films from this year’s Open Projector Nights, including the public vote winners. 

Enjoy a curated selection of short films ranging from animated narratives and commercial work to experimental pieces. After the screening, participate in a question and answer session with the filmmakers, and stay for an after party with live music, complimentary snacks, and a cash bar.

Open Projector Night is a recurring series that takes place several times a year at UICA. Anyone is welcome to submit a short movie for consideration, and there are no restrictions on content or genre, and no fee to submit. Films are selected and curated into an eighty-minute program by a panel of UICA staff members and dedicated volunteers. The Open Projector Night Showcase is a selection of work from the year’s series.

The Open Projector Night Showcase is supported by:

West Michigan Film Video Alliance

D'Arts Donuts

Two Scotts Barbecue
