Flicker Festival

In its decade at Cat's Cradle, Flicker has featured horror films and romances, mysteries and sci-fi all in the name of indie. In 1994, super 8 fanatic Norwood Cheek, who had been a videographer for local Chapel Hill musicians, brought his own passion, filmmaking, to the mainstage featuring low budget films. This year, under the direction of Nicole Trish, the festival will feature everything from a zombie husband in Tara Pinley's Committed to a film being described as a cross between Office Space and The Matrix in Douglas Roberts' Cubical Fugitive. The festival--on Monday, Oct. 24 at the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro--will also feature high schooler Ellery Weibe who won Flicker's hat trick raffle, an event that awarded her a super 8 reel to create a film on a specific topic. Movies start at 8:30 p.m.
