Tampa Film Review Reminder for July

By Paul Guzzo

The next Tampa Film Review, presented by 1 Day Films, will be held on Friday, July 14 from 8 – 10 p.m. at International Bazaar, located at 1600 E. Eighth Ave. in the Centro Ybor Complex. Tampa Film Reviews is a monthly showcase of local independent films and is held every second Friday of the month and is free.

July’s films include:

The Cactus by John Matheny: Two longtime friends have just returned from the wedding of the sister of one of them. The other had dated the sister for a long time. The two explore the reasons why the relationship broke up.

The Wright Stuff by Ford Austin: Follow the hilarious adventures of the Wright Brothers as they use "Powered Flight" when President Teddy Roosevelt dispatches them to combat crime and evil around the globe.

The Mechanics of Choice by Chris Giuffre: The Mechanics Of Choice was originally commissioned by the Arts Center in St. Petersburg for a show show entitled "X-ing", which explored themes based on the idea of a "metaphorical crossroads". The filmmakers took this idea at face value and stripped the concept to its most basic element, Choice, and built on that. In this multi-channel video, the viewer observes what seems to be, at least at first, three different storylines played out concurrently. As the piece moves on, however, we see that these characters are in fact, bound together.

Armed by Joe Sanchez: It's 3 in a morning and someone is missing. Detective Douglas knows that sometimes procedure can wait. Tonight he'll go out and look for her but who is she. He's armed and ready but what's her story?

Reunion by Joe Sanchez: Charlene just ran into her old college roommate Bethany but its not what you think. Find out what happens when an unfinished conversation emerges. Reunion: they say your first love is the hardest one to let go but what if it's the right thing to do.

Hand Delivery by Damien and Josh Kincannon: Is Clark boring or crazy? It depends who you ask …

And more!

1 Day Films feels that there are very few, if any, regular outlets in the local area for local independent filmmakers to showcase their films. Hopefully, this monthly event will provide that outlet for everyone, from experienced local independent filmmakers to local college and high school filmmakers experimenting with film production for the first time. 1 Day Films promises your film will be shown!

Coffeehouse Film Review was awarded a 2005 Best of the Bay Award for BEST REASONS TO BELIEVE THE LOCAL FILM SCENE IS ALIVE AND WELL.
