FAN FILM SHOWCASE
SHOWN AT 7:15PM
A “fan film” is a fan-produced tribute to a favorite film, and in that commercial gain from such films is prohibited by law, some say it is filmmaking at its purest – “for the love of the thing.” Fan films range from short and comic, like Kevin Rubio’s “Star Wars” themed “Cops” parody “Troops” to the fantastic shared universe short “Batman: Dead End” to feature-length remakes like the legendary “Raiders: The Adaptation” (in which three kids from Mississippi spent nearly seven years making their own version of “Raiders Of The Lost Ark”).
Join us as we welcome author Clive Young as he presents a selection of hand-picked fan films and discusses his new book, “Homemade Hollywood,” which focuses on the surprisingly long history of this genre.

Alex is immediately attracted to the young man, which adds yet another level of complexity to her personal search for identity, and forces both families to face their worst fears.

Isabel Natti’s Herring Factory Print is incredible on many different levels. One is that it is visually gorgeous, but what the casual observer may not understand is how much detail and how accurate the entire scene is to how we actually did things back in the day. Isabel worked for Wally Maggot, a guy who rented a pier that no longer exists on our property. They did the same type of whiting, squid and herring packing that my Grandfather Captain Joe, and Father and Uncle’s company did.
