Lincoln Herald Staff

LINCOLNTON, N.C.––Gallery 27 is offering the chance to see the works of some up-and-coming filmmakers.

According to owner Stacey Smith, the second annual Gallery 27 Micro Film Festival will be held there Jan. 11, 7-9 p.m., and Jan. 12, 6-8 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

“The film screenings will be followed by a discussion with local filmmakers,” Smith recently said. “Prepare to be entertained! Due to the success of last year’s festival, we are offering two nights of screenings. The same films will be shown each night, and popcorn and drinks will be provided.

“The film festival works are intended to show the many ways that film and video can be used as an art form to inform and express,” she continued. “They are not commercial films of the sort that you can find in your standard multiplex. Parents should review the lineup and decide if the films are appropriate for their younger children (as some of the films feature violence and profanity). Join us as we celebrate the art of filmmaking! This is a free community event, with no ticket purchase required. The film screenings will be followed by a discussion with local filmmakers.

The short films include the following dramas, synopsized below.

“Jelly Bean” is directed by Devin Walker and Christian Sales. After the death of her adopted mother, Claire and her father deal with the aftermath while she thinks about trying to find her biological family.

“Humble Beast” is directed by Ricardo Garcia. Nick is a young, undefeated bare-knuckle boxer who is indebted to some of the city’s most dangerous people. Nick faces a match that, upon his victory, would provide the money he desperately needs. When his wife discovers he’s having an affair, Nick must decide what is truly worth fighting for.

“No Tip” is directed by Christine Hurley. Loyalties are tested when a young man crosses paths with the son of a mob boss.

And “After the Wake” is directed by Michael Helms. Two estranged sisters clash after the death of their mother, forcing a buried secret to the surface.

The film festival also features two comedies:

“Armageddon” is directed by Jim Meyer. One scene in a coffee shop takes us through a couple’s flourishing and then floundering relationship.
