It’s lights, camera and action on the 2017 Camera Jam Showcase at the Historic Howell Theater, with screenings set for 7 p.m. Friday and 4 p.m. Saturday featuring the work of more than 20 local filmmakers. The two-hour event features a wide range of genres, including sci-fi, horror, home movies, documentaries and more.
Camera Jam Showcase is an open-projector event, which means there are no judges, film guidelines or awards.
The goal of the Camera Jam Showcase is giving people an opportunity to present their stories on the big screen. The emphasis is on the storytelling, not the technology.
“We have a couple of shorts that were shot on iPhones this year,” said Tyler DePerro, owner of the Historic Howell Theater.
Parental guidance is strongly urged as the films featured in the third Camera Jam Showcase are not rated.
Admission to the event is free.
