alt.pictureshows at MCASD-La Jolla

Last night I checked out the alt.pictureshows short film festival at the Museum of Contemprary San Diego, La Jolla.

Alt.Pictureshows isn’t an ordinary film festival. They setup five different screens around the museum, each with a theme, and showing a loop of about five different movies throughout the night. It was really nice to be able to get up and walk around. Each screen had a different theme, so you could pick and choose what to watch without sitting restlessly in the same chair for hours.

My favorite was the “Tainted Love — The Video Remix” screen, I saw a couple shorts I really liked in there, but my favorite of the night was by far a film called Spider. I found it on Youtube, so here it is.
