Area Filmmakers Invited to Show Their Earliest (And Most Embarrassing) Short Films

[Press release from Akron Film+Pixel.]

Akron Film+Pixel would like to invite Northeast Ohio filmmakers to share their earliest movies at a free special event on June 14, 2012 at The Lockview (207 South Main Street, Akron) starting at 8

“We’re looking for your first attempt at making a movie,” says Rob Lucas, Akron Film+Pixel Communication Director. “Something more than just home videos, but before you made your first polished professional project. I’m looking forward to seeing those sixth grade renditions of Siddhartha from 1992. And don’t worry, we’ll be laughing with you.”


Registration is free, and while it is not required, it is encouraged. Filmmakers can register by sending their name, title and length of the movie to


Akron Film+Pixel will provide a DVD player, a VHS VCR, a VHS-C adaptor and a Mini-DV player. If
filmmakers have a movie on a different format they must bring a player with standard RCA outputs or the necessary film projector. It is requested that all movies be no more than roughly ten minutes in length. Filmmakers will be asked to speak before their movie to introduce themselves and provide a context for the video.

Attending the Screening

Attendance for this program is free and open to the public. Parking is free after 6 p.m. on Main Street. The event will be limited to the Lockview rooftop, so seating is on a first-come-first-serve basis.
