Heads up: Tonight is the No Budget Film Festival, a nifty experiment in which filmmakers are challenged to make a movie without a budget. Literally – these aren’t movies made on a shoestring budget; these are made without the shoestrings, period. Filmmakers only could rely on things they already had, things they could borrow, or things that were donated.
Out of the 50 or so films that were entered in the festival, 15 were chosen for tonight’s screening at the Downtown Independent. And, of course, there will be prizes: the Critic’s Choice Award, as well as the Audience Choice Award, chosen by you, truly.
Tickets are $10 online and $15 at the door.
