The Catastrophe at Terroir Film Night

terroir

My short film The Catastrophe, winner of the Best Dramatic Short at the Illinois International Film Festival in 2011, will be screening this Sunday night at the Red & White Wine Shop’s “Terroir Film Night.” Advertised as a “night of natural wines and local films,” this adventurous program curated by Emily Railsback will feature short “dark-themed” works by local filmmakers including Al Benoit, Larissa Berringer, Chris Hefner, Mark Winters, Railsback and yours truly.

According to Railsback, “Terroir can be very loosely translated as ‘a sense of place,’ which is embodied in certain characteristic qualities, the sum of the effects that the local environment has had on the production of the product. Both wine and film are better when you understand their connection to the place they came from, thus: Terroir Film Night: A night of natural wines and local films at Red & White Wine Shop.”

Admission is $10. Or buy a bottle of wine / beer ($10 or more) to waive the entry fee. This includes a free Free Wine Tasting from 7 – 8pm and film screenings at 8pm.

    Your short film sounds great. I wish I could go to the event this weekend, sadly I am busy:( Anyway, what is the name of that student in your class again, who loves 70’s cinema? The reason I need to know is because we exchanged e-mail addresses and I cannot e-mail him with Dear nameless person:) Sorry, If this sounds like a goofy question. Anyway, I bet people will love your film at the event this weekend:)
