Event added for hackerspace week: Short film screening & Movie Night

091 labs

This Sunday @ 7pm we will be showing a few short films by local artists, followed by a screening of the first episode of Pioneer One.

We haven’t finalised a list, but it looks as though we’ll have 5 or 6 short films averaging 2 to 3 minutes in length. If you have a late submission get in touch using the contact form.

Pioneer One is a crowd-sourced low-budget production by Josh Bernhard and Bracey Smith. The funds for the project were raised through Kickstarter.
