35th Asbury Short Film Concert

When: Fri., March 3, 7:30 p.m. 2017

After thirty-five years of showing selections of short films to audiences in a touring "film concert," the New York-based Asbury Short Films finally makes its way to the Triangle. Drawing on distinguished, award-winning films from national and international festivals, the scrupulously curated medley runs the gamut from animation and comedy to drama. Included this year are a pair of dramatic films made in-state and featured in the North Carolina Museum of History's own Longleaf Film Festival: "Oh, Crappy Day," about a teen struggling with OCD, and "Civil," set in 1865. Other notable shorts include "A Poet Long Ago," written Pete Hamill and starring Stephen Schirripa of Sopranos fame, and "Globe Trot," a collaboration between filmmaker Mitchell Rose and choreographer Bebe Miller. Catch the films at seven-thirty as part of the museum's First Friday events from five to nine, which also include live music by Castle Wild at six-thirty and craft beer from Oak & Dagger.—David Klein
