Super 8 screener Melinda Stone, San Francisco, visits minicine Mon, Nov 20, 8 pm


At minicine? David Nelson has another show, which is nice because renovation will shutter 846 Texas for an extended time. Coming Mon night is Melinda Stone, (San Francisco / Super-Super 8 Film Festival), who, says Nelson, "will screen new work and tell stories from the frontier... A somewhat anachronistic film maker, curator and researcher, Melinda Stone dabbles in it all to create an eclectic show that highlights her on-going interest in land use, amateur filmmaking and outdoor film extravaganzas.

A kind of present day film impresario, Stone borrows from the past and infuses each of her unique shows with sing-alongs and other participatory fare. Stone is currently on tour with a program entitled “I’ll Show You Mine, If You Show Me Yours” – and she stands behind the implied promise. Come find out what she means and check out her recent offerings including selections from her most recent site-specific film events – The California Tour and A Trip Down Market 1905/2005, a brand new sing-along, and Audience Analysis film. A grand time is sure to be had by all, as is always true when Stone visits Shreveport!"

Inasmuch as Under the Ground local films is not going to happen because of renovation, filmmakers are invited to grab complete work and go to 846 tonight. "Show us yours... Do you have a film to screen! minicine? ask any interested filmmakers with a new short (under ten minutes) laying about to bring it down to add to the program for the night... Email us some info and we will include your work... minicine?"
