THE FILMS OF STANLEY KUBRICK SERIES
Monthly, July 2014 through August 2015. We are proud to celebrate a new series that will honor the incredible work of legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick. The late director’s filmography will be presented one feature at a time, starting in July and running through August 2015. Nominated for 13 Academy Awards, Kubrick was a giant in his craft, and stands as an influence to most filmmakers working today. He was a key member of the New Hollywood movement that saw a group of directors rise to prominence between the 1960s and the 1980s. Kubrick films such as Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Paths of Glory, Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb and The Shining were breakthroughs in their individual genres and established the director as one of the best directors that ever lived.
48 Hour Film Fest
July 18, 19, 20, and 28
The fest is the outcome of the 48 Hour Film Project—a frenzied, sleepless weekend in which teams of filmmakers write, shoot, edit, and score a film in just 48 hours. On the night the project begins, the teams are assigned a character, a prop, a line of dialogue, and a genre, that must be included in their movie. In 2014, the 48HFP will visit more than 120 cities worldwide where more than 60,000 people will make short films. The Project has spread to the four corners of the globe as filmmakers from Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Americas will compete to see who can make the best short film in one weekend. The Pittsburgh-made films will screen at the Hollywood Theater beginning 6 p.m., Friday and continuing at 11 a.m., Saturday, and noon, Sunday. Then, at 6 p.m., Monday, July 28, is the Best of Screening & Award presentations. Stop by to find out who gets the ‘Best of Pittsburgh’ title and will go on to compete against the other winners from around the world. More information and tickets here.
10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, July 26
