After tonight’s 7 p.m. screening of Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Inferno — part of the Sie FilmCenter’s collaboration with the Colorado Photographic Arts Center on photography in film, and a work that the center’s Keith Garcia calls “part experimental film that never came to fruition and part restoration” — lets out, it won’t be time to go home. That’s because another group of filmmakers will be setting up in the lobby for Art-Plant Light Media, a separate program of screenings and a panel discussion. Curated by Ken Hamel of Denverarts.org, the filmgoers’ nightcap is anything but an afterthought: The well-selected collection of super 8mm, 16mm, digital and even VHS footage by Denver artists who also work in multimedia will celebrate such talents as Homare Ikeda, Brenda LaBier, Noah Manos, Christopher R. Perez, Rett Rogers, Eric Waldemar and Mario Zoots.
And since their pieces will be shown in the lobby rather than a theater, the screenings are free. “The space seems really great,” Hamel says. “I’m hoping to make this a quarterly event if there’s interest.” Art-Plant Film Night will start as soon as Inferno ends; visit the Sie FilmCenter online at denverfilm.org for details.
