The Sparrow Film Project will once again be taking place at the Museum of the Moving Image! We look forward to welcoming our filmmakers, friends, and community back to the Sumner M. Redstone Theater for a screening of the nominated films and award ceremony.
Doors open at 7pm for a half hour of champagne and then we begin seating in the theater. After the film we all come back out for the open bar and hors d'oeuvre. Then we'll go back into the theater for the awards ceremony.
A brief history: The Sparrow Film Project started as a filmmaking contest in Queens, New York. A rag-tag group of artists came together and picked made-up-movie titles out of a hat. Based on the title picked, each participant had three weeks to make a three minute film. We screened all of the finished films and held an awards ceremony at our bar, The Sparrow Tavern.
Years later, this event continues to evolve. With each project, participants receive a new set of challenges that evoke passion and creativity for the artists involved and that generate cultural enrichment for the community. Once the films are submitted and judged, we celebrate the filmmakers and their efforts by hosting a gala an emceed evening with live music, food and awards.
We hope to continue providing a forum in which the community can invent, create, and share ideas in the film medium.
