The James River Film Society hosts some of the most exciting events in Richmond every year. The James River Film Festival has brought amazing artists to Richmond, including the Stan Brakhage, Brothers Quay, Ray Harryhausen, Martha Colburn, and Gary Lucas of Captain Beefheart (who played steel guitar to Rene Clair’s Entr’acte in 2006...overwhelmingly beautiful). Once they organized an event where The Richmond Indigenous Gourd Orchestra played live along to Nanuk of the North! I have so many wonderful memories thanks to these amazing people (James Parrish!) that work their butts off to organize these events in Richmond, and I am so honored this year to participate in one of their newest programs, James River Shorts. On Friday, November 11, from 6:30-9pm, my film and others from around the globe will screen in this juried competition at the Virginia Museum.
