Red Oak Realty Outdoor Cinema is expanding the summer movie series with the first ever OAKLAND SHORT, SHORT FILM FESTIVAL. These 10 short films are focused on life in Oakland. Filmmakers will be in attendance as the shorts are shown outdoors on a fifty foot screen. The film fest is FREE to the public and is family-friendly.
Sponsored by The Montclair Village Association, Red Oak Realty and Crown Wine & Spirits, the film festival will focus on social insights relevant to a changing Oakland and highlighting the work of local filmmakers. The festival features an array of genres from documentary to art, animation, and fiction.
Highlights of THE OAKLAND SHORT, SHORT FILM FESTIVAL include:
Documentaries from Oakland’s Camp Reel Stories. A non-profit, Camp Reel empowers 13-18 year old young women with the skills to create their own media, view current media critically and thoughtfully and aspire to leadership in their field. And they deliver great storytelling, too.
Film veteran, Pixar and Disney alumnus, and Academy Award nominee Jim Capobianco will show his independent film and animated short Leonardo. Jim was a writer on The Lion King and Ratatouille, and is currently completing production of the full-length version of his short with Disney.
The festival will also feature curated selections from the 2016 Brainwash Movie Festival including Reid Hemsing’s The Morning Ride, Jody Oberfelder’s art expose, Dance of Neurons, and Phil D’Asaro’s Death of Del Paso, the turn-around story of a not too distant city.
“There is so much great filmmaking talent in the area. Thanks to the support of Crown Wine & Spirits and Red Oak Realty, we were able to put together a fun and thought-provoking collection of short films,” said Daniel Swafford, Executive Director of the Montclair Village Association.
Some of the filmmakers and producers will be in attendance for a brief Q&A. The OAKLAND SHORT, SHORT FILM FESTIVAL will showcase 10 short movies projected outdoors beginning at dark. Bring your chair and a blanket, enjoy the Montclair Village community of restaurants and make it a night out!
