Open Screen Night @ Heritage House Saturday
Chattanooga, TN … ChattaMovies, a local independent moviemaker group, the City of Chattanooga's Department of Education Arts & Culture, and the Chattanooga Southeast Tennessee Film Commission will co-host an open screen night at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 7, 2012 at the Heritage House in East Brainerd.
About 2 hours of independently-produced short works submitted by movie makers from Chattanooga and the surrounding region will be screened at the event. Admission for the event is FREE. Three Open Screen Nights will be held throughout the year at Heritage House. Many genres will be represented in the mix of entries--from music videos and comedies, to documentaries and dramas. The works voted as Audience Favorites at the three Open Screen Nights in Chattanooga and Atlanta will be screened at year's end at the "Best of Open Screen Night 2012" event to be held at a major theatre in Chattanooga. The "Best of Open Screen Night 2011" was held at the Rave Theatre.
Jim Smith, EarLuminator producer and one of the event's organizers, says he thinks of Open Screen Night as an "open mic night" for indie movie makers. "We don't even jury the submissions. Everyone's film has a chance to be seen. There is no better way to support the
local indie artist than to watch their works being screened - We just screened the current submissions of excellent works in Atlanta, and now it's Chattanooga's turn to vote for their favorites."
Information on how to submit works to "Open Screen Nights" in 2012 can be found at: EarLuminator.com/openscreennight.

STEPHEN COLBERT GUESTS ON LETTERMAN'S SHOW
NEW YORK (AP) -- It was old meets new on Letterman last night. Stephen Colbert (kohl-BAYR'), who will be taking over for the retiring David Letterman, was a guest on the "Late Show." It was Colbert's first appearance since CBS made the announcement. Colbert says he has a simple plan for his new job -- he's going to do whatever Dave does. That got a laugh from Letterman and the audience. Colbert revealed he was offered an internship decades ago on Letterman's old NBC show. Colbert says he didn't take it because the job didn't pay and New York is an expensive city. Colbert's new gig will start sometime next year.
