Viewers of our Short Film Showcase series often ask for links to videos they especially enjoyed. Others may want to revisit whole Showcase sessions – since each one was carefully curated by series founder Stephanie Brasher or Starkey, who now works with her. To that end, Stephanie has supplied a list of Showcase video titles shown below. Out of the bezillions of videos currently on YouTube, you can usually find a specific video if you enter its exact name in YouTube “search.”
Short Film Showcase #11 will be presented via Zoom on Monday, December 7, at 1 pm with a selection of dramas, comedies, documentaries, and animations chosen to entertain, inspire, and motivate. Online group discussion will follow each video, led by Dr. Tom Nash. For an invitation, please send your name, email address, and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating the event you wish to attend.
The Short Film Showcase concept was an immediate success when it was first offered in the Video Lab on April 1, 2019, complete with free popcorn and thoughtful discussions after each video led by Dr. Tom Nash. It replaced the “Project Day” series of meetings, when members shared recent and in-progress video projects for critique and discussion. Soon SFS was made a quarterly event (skipping summer, per club policy).
The last Showcase to be held in the Video Lab was SFS #4 on February 3, 2020. As the Video Club adapted to life under COVID, the SFS series resumed via Zoom on June 1, 2020. President Steve Carman, who hosts the series, switched to monthly Zoom Showcases (at least for the duration of the pandemic) on July 13, 2020.
