Blue Star Contemporary collaborated with Germany’s Darmstädter Sezession to curate Projection/Projektion, an exhibition of short films that will debut in two screenings held at the Mission Marquee Plaza as part of this year’s 6th Annual World Heritage Festival.

The program will feature a shortlist of films by 12 San Antonio artists, including Barbara Felix’s “Liminality of Self Reflections of Color Culture,” Juan Flores’ “Satellite,” Domeinic Jimenez’s “10 Seconds” and Guillermina Zabala’s “Amalia Ortiz: La Valiente.” On Thursday, one of the 12 finalists will be awarded a $6,000 prize.

Films from Darmstädter Sezession members, including the winner of the sister event Projektion Darmstadt, will screen alongside the locals’ works on the program.

Free, 7 p.m. Wednesday, September 8 and Thursday, September 9, Mission Marquee Plaza, 3100 Roosevelt Ave., (210) 227-6960, bluestarcontemporary.org.
