If you haven’t been to an Open Projector Night, here’s a short teaser:
OPN 5 is a Bear Tooth Theatrepub, Royal Printing, Alaska Distillery, and the Alaska Filmmakers Series (AKF) sponsor the event.
The first OPN was held in January of 2011 with only a hand full of local filmmakers in attendance. The event then grew into four house packed events held throughout the year at venues like Out North, Steve’s Sport Bar, and the Snow Goose Theatre. A Best of OPN screen was also held as part of the 2011 Anchorage International film Festival.
Open Projector Night brings together an increasing number of local filmmakers and has featured a wide array of original stories produced here in Alaska.
