All right, you lazy little bastards, this is your last warning. If you’re gonna enter your short (20 minutes or less) film in the 2009 Josiah Youth Media Festival, you better be reading this shit either on set or in the post office, ’cause you got until June 1 to postmark that masterpiece. Go to urban15.org for more details, and tell them the Snuffleupagus sent you. On second thought, don’t say that, ever.
But there are more important concerns, here. According to Solar San Antonio, we’re all Addicted to Plastic. Speaking as someone who’s tried to smoke the stuff, I find this hard to believe, but SSA claims this documentary is a much-needed intervention. Check it out Thursday, May 28, at Alamo Drafthouse Westlakes (drafthouse.com/westlakes). Tickets are $5 for SSA members and students, $9 for everybody else.
If you swear you’ve got that plastic habit under control, go to Madhatters Tea House & Café Express (106 Auditorium Circle) at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 29, for Café Cinema, featuring seven short films and the best 15-minute intermission you ever saw in your life.
