The Crocker Art Museum will present an encore screening of the 2011 “Place Called Sacramento” film festival at the museum on Thursday, Feb. 4. The show starts at 6:30 p.m.
Friends of Access Sacramento, PCS filmmakers and fans are invited to celebrate, again, the 10 short films first premiered last October at the Crest Theatre.
Tickets are $4 for Crocker members; non-members will pay $8 in advance (online at crockerartmuseum.org or Admission Desk) or $10 at the door.
“A Place Called Sacramento” (PCS) is the original, local scriptwriting and short film production project for local writers and producers. PCS challenges local scriptwriters, new and experienced, to write 10-minute scripts about the people, places and events that make our community such a unique place to live (entry forms and submission guidelines are available online at AccessSacramento.org). The deadline for script submission is 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 10, 2012, in the Access Sacramento office.
The Crocker screening serves as the official launch of the 13th annual PCS production process.
Want to know more about making a movie this summer? Do you have a good story but need to write a script? All scripts entered are reviewed by local professionals and 10 are selected. These 10 scriptwriter/producers are then introduced to volunteers, actors and technicians at The PCS “Cast and Crew Call” Wednesday, May 23, 2012.
Production teams are formed and shooting/editing commences during the summer months. Finally, after weeks of hard work and great fun, friends gather at the world premiere to a packed house at the Crest Theatre at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012. All films are family friendly. The PCS production process is unique to Sacramento.
To view the films completed for the 2011 and previous PCS film festivals visit AccessSacramento.org. In the 12 years of PCS, more than 119 short films have been created.
