The Houston Cinema Arts Society (HCAS), a Houston-based non-profit organization, presents its first Cinema Arts Festival Houston from Nov. 11-13. HCAS will collaborate with Houston museums, art centers, theaters and cultural organizations to present a unique film festival that showcases new films by and about artists working in the visual, performing and literary arts.
In addition to screenings, the festival will feature live music and film performances, outdoor projections, media installations and more. Among the highlights of the program will be the premiere of Laura Harrison’s documentary, “Ant Farm 1969-1971: Early Underground Adventures with Space, Land and Time,” accompanied by artwork created by University of Houston architecture and media art students.
The organizers are also planning a special silent film screening accompanied by music written and performed by Houston school children.
The event will take place at multiple locations throughout Houston, including the Angelika Film Center; Miller Outdoor Theatre; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Rice Media Center; University of Houston; and Warehouse Live.
The full Festival program will be announced in September.
