MOTORCO MUSIC HALL—This new, 16-minute film by Raleigh independent filmmaker Evan Kidd was shot locally, but it has already garnered notice as far away as Zurich, where it was an official selection of the 2014 Viewster Film Festival. The short focuses on an unexpected, redemptive encounter between two women, one homeless, the other returning home in the wake of her father's disappearance. Fine production values polish up a story notable for its two strong female leads and its awareness-raising take on homelessness. This is part of a planned series of local screenings to raise money for shelters. Stick around afterward for a Q&A with Kidd and actors Avery Hobbs and April Vickery, followed by a screening of Kidd's 2013 documentary Spazz Out!, which covers the Spazz Fest music festival in Greenville, North Carolina. As you spend time at home for the holidays (whether that means your ancestral home or just any home), this is a call to think about those who can't—and to act. 7 p.m., $2 suggested donation, 723 Rigsbee Ave., 919-901-0875, www.motorcomusic.com. —Brian Howe
