PBS ONLINE FILM FESTIVAL

MOTORCO MUSIC HALL, DURHAM | FRIDAY, JUNE 26

The fourth annual PBS Online Film Festival, which runs from June 15 to July 17, includes three independent films from North Carolina. UNC-TV hosts a free screening of them at Motorco in case you'd rather watch with friends than on the Internet. Un Buen Carnicero, a documentary from Vittles Films with support from the Southern Foodways Alliance, explores the immigrant experience in a setting very familiar to Carrboro readers, Cliff's Meat Market (you can also view it on the INDY website). And a pair of films that came out of the UNC School of the Arts, Helpless and Kilroy Was Here, are dramatic shorts set, respectively, in a modern high-school library and World War II-era France, where a connection develops between local orphans and an American pilot stuck in a tree. After the screenings, there will be Q&As with casts and crews, prize drawings and a party with Durham band Triple Fret. You can vote for your favorite films at Motorco or online at www.pbs.org/filmfestival. 8 p.m., free, 723 Rigsbee Ave., Durham, 919-901-0875, www.motorcomusic.com. —Brian Howe
