COOP Gallery is pleased to present Microcinema: A Short Film Festival by COOP Gallery. Microcinema is an experimental film and video festival. This year the screening will take place outdoors at COOP Gallery in Nashville, TN over two nights, during the premiere of Artville.
Microcinema will feature work by independent film/video artists from the Southeast and beyond. The goal of our microcinematic event is to share a range of artistic expressions, cultural perspectives, and critical inquiries with Nashville’s creative community.
The two-evening event will feature screenings of over twenty short films, along with filmmaker introductions of their films and filmmaker panels. Seven awards will be handed out, including the IBFF Choice Award. Two short films, one chosen by COOP and one chosen by the International Black FIlm Festival (IBFF), will be screened both at COOP’s Microcinema and at the International Black Film Festival, which occur during the same weekend. Audience members will also have the chance to vote for one film to receive the Audience Festival Favorite award.
