Central Productions presents its 10th Annual Boston Cinema Census this Thursday at Cambridge’s Brattle Theatre. The event serves as a showcase for New England filmmakers with short films of varying forms, such as Documentary, Narrative, Animation and Experimental.
The ten diverse films screening at the census were chosen from an open call throughout New England. Mike Bowes, Director of Central Productions explains how the the organization selects films for the BCC:
“We take the idea of a ‘census’ to heart; looking out for new up-and-coming talent, and most importantly being able to provide an outlet for local work. It is always a process of identifying films that combine technical mastery, uniqueness in the stories to tell and how those stories are told!”
This year’s Boston Cinema Census includes works from BCC alums, Robert Todd and J.P. DiSciscio, who each have two films screening at this year’s census. The 2011 BCC also features filmmakers new to the showcase, like Erika Street and Dave Gordon.
Central Productions is a film production and program organization that founded the BCC in 2001 with the mission to “advance an emerging film community and to contribute alternative bodies of work within the culture of the moving image.”
The 10th Annual Boston Cinema Census will take place at the Brattle Theatre in Harvard Square in Cambridge on Thursday, March 24 at 7:30 PM.
