This summer, the Belcourt — with support from the @nashfilmguild — is hosting three Film Kitchen Meetups for high school filmmakers! Film Kitchen is a student-led community that provides young people a chance to connect, collaborate and build networks — and it’s been created by a participant of the Belcourt’s High School Film Club and Strong Leads Film Seminar for High School Girls.

The Film Kitchen Meetups will take place on three Sundays — June 11, July 9, August 13 — from 2-3:00pm at the Belcourt (in our upstairs Jackson Education and Engagement Space). Each meetup will feature guest speakers from Nashville’s filmmaking community and provide space for teen filmmakers to socialize, discuss their creative projects, and collaborate.

The meetups are designed for high school-age teens who are already making films or just getting started. They’re free — but RSVPs are needed. You can RSVP via the link in our bio, or at www.belcourt.org/filmkitchen.

Questions? Contact Allison Inman at allison@belcourt.org.

“A furious, queer, boisterous gangster epic that offers a view of the country from the outskirts and turns oppression into resistance.” —Leonardo Goi @thefilmstage

This Wed-Sun, May 17-21, a limited engagement of Joana Pimenta and Adirley Queirós’ DRY GROUND BURNING. An all-female gang draws oil from an underground pipeline and sells it to working-class motorbike couriers in this hybrid feature — part narrative documentary, part crumbling sci-fi, part classic Western — an electrifying reflection of modern-day Brazil. (Tickets at link in bio, or bit.ly/DRY-GROUND)

The country watches intently as a disgraced former president faces allegations of covering up illegal activities, inflation is completely out of control, and the Supreme Court is hearing arguments on the state of abortion. It’s 1973 in America.

Fifty years have passed, but many of the same issues still haunt the national psyche. As the U.S. ended its involvement in Vietnam, the young countercultural filmmakers who broke down Hollywood’s doors in the late ‘60s — and prepared the American consciousness for the moral complexities of the war and a changing society — became the heirs apparent to the entertainment-industrial complex. With more resources and the support of an avid public, the New Wave rolled ashore and gave us a veritable treasure chest of gritty stories and meaty performances.

This year, we celebrate the golden anniversary of many of the masterpieces those turbulent times helped produce with an eye to the future — and the art this generation might create to help us process the challenges we face today.

With 18 films, from Fri, May 19 through Thu, Jun 8 — and with tickets on sale now (including ticket 5-Packs and Full Series Passes) and a downloadable schedule to help you make your movie plans. Head to the link in our bio, or bit.ly/Belcourt-1973.
