Every great filmmmaker has to start somewhere. In fact, even the not-so-great ones need a place to air their cinematic laundry, and that's the reason for Open Screen Night Denver, a monthly event at the Oriental Theater that's open to anyone who dabbles in the art of short film and videotape.
It's simple: Arrive at 7 p.m. on the last Tuesday of every month to submit your shorty and schmooze with fellow videographers; at 8 p.m., the entries roll and prizes are given out for the most popular works. Think "Open Mic Night meets Gong Show meets Sundance," as the event tease goes. And tonight's 2013 opener features not only a new slate of videos, but a new projector to show them.
Admission is $5 at the door. For details visit the Facebook event page.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
