Study Up
Join us for night of short films by local filmmakers curated by Brian Russell of Red Shoe Film. We'll have several special guests for Q&A after their film. The night will be moderated by Brian Russell. Red Shoe Film was founded in 2010 after accidentally buying a camera. He has shot over 2,000 interviews, and has hundreds of credits to his name, ranging from an ESPN 30 for 30, to celebrities like Arianna Huffington, Ed Burns and the entire cast of Saturday Night Live. He loves movies, and has directed over a dozen short films (some of which he hopes you never see!)
