11th Annual Short Story Film Festival @ AS220 Black Box
Nov 25 @ 2:00 pm – 11:00 pm

The 11th annual Short Short Story Film Festival returns to Providence at AS220’s Black Box at 95 Empire in Providence on Saturday, November 25th.

The festival includes both live-action and animated films from across the globe, all of which tell a story in under six minutes. Enjoy two distinct programs of cultural excursions, each in the time of seeing a feature film in less than 90 minutes.

The first program, christened the Heartstrings, explores the challenges of forging human connections and surviving life’s transitions. It screens at 2:00 pm and 6:00 pm.

The second, the Headtrip, presents mental excursions with unanticipated detours, often with an undertone of dark wit. It screens at 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm.

The competitive international film event includes audience voting for both programs, and DJ Madame B will be mixing soundscapes between and after screenings, with a reception to conclude the festival.

Tickets are available at the door for $10 per screening or online for $15 including both screenings.

MergingArts Productions is an organization dedicated to cultural programming encompassing film, music, visual arts, technology and media.

Across the floor combinations focus on rhythm, elevations, turns, and changes in level, direction, and dynamic.  Influences include the traditional techniques of Horton, Limon, and Cunningham with constant attention to contemporary safe dance practices.  While some dance experience is ideal, this class is adaptable to each student’s level of experience and anatomical structure.

     AnnDitmarsHuyck-1 Ann offers a traditional ballet class with a special focus on musicality, epaulement, and the joy of fully embodied movement.  Her barre exercises allow time to warm up slowly while developing the alignment, strength, and precision  that create freedom in the center.  Dancers slow down for the the beauty and breath of adage before progressing to the speed of petit allegro and the fun of moving through space.   Ann especially enjoys discovering and sharing the “movement” in ballet, and she offers options throughout the class so dancers can tailor exercises to the level of challenge they each need.
