Eugene, OR. “Flickering Images and Silver Screens” is the theme of a special DIVA Center open house event during the First Friday Art Walk from 5:30PM to 8:00 PM on August 6th. The Center will be hosting an informational evening showcasing many of the area’s film organizations that present film festivals, teach about film, and promote professional film, video, and media arts production.
The evening’s goal is to share with the public the growing diversity of film and video programming and activities in our community.
Confirmed participants with hosted tables, many with audiovisual presentations sampling their programs, include: Mid-Oregon Production Arts Network (MOPAN), The Archeology Channel’s International Film Festival, The Eugene International Film Festival, the University of Oregon’s Cinema Pacific, The Eugene Celebration Film Festival, DisOrient Asian American Film Festival, and DIVA’s own OpenLens Festival, Behind The Lens Film Seminar, Youth Visions Teen Video Challenge and The Shaggy Dog Project film production workshop.
Then, at 8:15, the Archaeological Legacy Institute (ALI) and DIVA hosts the first program in The ArchaeologyFest Film Series: Best of 2010 with “Chumpi’s Adventure” and “Lost Nation: The Ioway”. These are two of the jury-selected films from The Archaeology Channel’s International Film and Video Festival held this past spring. Doors open at 7:45. Admission: $6. Other programs in this fundraising series follow on August 7th, 13th, and 14th.
