Weekend To-Do: T Tauri Film Festival

Posted By on Thu, Jul 30, 2009 at 10:19 AM

T TAURI FILM FESTIVAL
7 p.m., Independence Hall, University of Arkansas Community College, Batesville. Free.

“Suddenly one day some fat girl in Ohio is going to be the next Mozart and make a beautiful film with her father's camera and for once the so-called professionalism about movies will be destroyed forever, and it will really become an art form,” said Francis Ford Coppola, famously, years ago. The director was riffing on 8mm recorders. Now, of course, preteens own Flip cameras and edit footage better than their parents. The work of those budding filmmakers, or at least those in grades six to 12, will be on display all weekend at the fifth annual T Tauri Film Festival. An outgrowth of the Ozark Foothills Film Festival, the festival opened, earlier in the week, with a series of workshops on topics like screenwriting, using a camera, documentary film and hand-drawn animation. The public program starts on Thursday with a discussion of animation by instructor Wes Obrigewitsch and a screening of animated entries. Friday's program, also free and kicking off at 7 p.m., is dedicated to comedy and drama entries. Documentaries will screen beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday, with an overview of the winners and an awards ceremony to follow. Admission on Saturday is $1-$8. For a fuller schedule visit www.ttauri.org.
