Since I discussed The Neon Cinema in one of my recent reflections, I wanted to mention that this weekend is the third annual Film Dayton Festival. The theme for this festival is From Dayton/For Dayton. Some of the films that will be shown are produced and directed by filmmakers who have lived and worked in the local community. Here is the web address for the festival: http://www.filmdaytonfestival.com/
Sorry I tried to put a link into the post but for some reason it would not work.

Another film event in the area that is taking place is a three-part film series highlighting the work and career of the internationally acclaimed director Zhang Yimou. I wrote about this director's wonderful film Ju Duo early in the quarter. I sincerely recommend any of Yimou's early films. Conveniently the film series is taking place at Wright State but two of Yimou's films have already been shown earlier in the month. Tomorrow night at 7:00 in room 135 Allyn Hall students and faculty can watch the third sequel to this three part series. Afterward, audience members have the opportunity to discuss the film with Dr. Lisa Morrisette, who is an assistant art and art history professor and the Chinese Studies Committee.

I unfortunately have a class during the screening of Yimou's film but I'm hoping to find some time this weekend to check out one or two Dayton based films. What can be more exciting then to view a professional award winning film that was created, directed, or produced by a fellow Daytonian!
