On Thursday April 25, 2013 at 7:00pm Goforaloop Gallery & Studios is offering filmmakers and cinephiles an exciting opportunity to view the short films of local filmmakers alongside the early works of today’s top directors. The Long And The Short of It is a monthly film series hosted by Goforaloop Gallery & Studios, located at 1458 San Bruno Avenue in the Mission District of San Francisco. Each month will showcase a variety of feature and short films, in an atmosphere dedicated to fostering connections between filmmakers.
As Jurassic Park makes its triumphant return to big screens across the country, this time in “Lawyer-Chomping 3D”, we’re reminded of the imprint that Steven Spielberg has made on the modern cinema experience. From Jaws to E.T., Schindler’s List to Indiana Jones, he has directed some of the most iconic films of the last 40 years. But where did this goliath of the silver screen get his start? This month will feature Spielberg’s first feature film, The Sugarland Express, an action filled comedy starring a young Goldie Hawn, as well as his 1968 short film Amblin’, a story of two young wanderers who serendipitously join one another on the road.
Future events will feature films by directors such as Martin Scorsese, David Lynch, Paul Thomas Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, and more.
