Super Short Films to be Screened

Work by residents of Greater New Haven will be included when three “super short” films are screened by the MiTown Film Group from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. April 10 at the Buttonwood Tree Performing Arts & Cultural Center, 605 Main St., Middletown.
The group will present three films that are shorter than five minutes each and input from the public is encouraged, organizers said. This event is free and open to the public.
The three pieces were planned and produced over an 18-month period, organizers said. The “emphasis of the project was to highlight arts and culture in Middletown by choosing locations that represented its rich diversity: Russell Library, Green Street Arts Center, and The Buttonwood Tree,” the group said in a statement.
MiTown Film Group, which has members from Hamden, North Haven, Bethany, Madison and Middletown, among other communities, is a “no-budget, Connecticut based consortium seeking to learn more about the film production process by examining and putting into practice as many professional production points as” possible, and it plans and directs as a group, the statement said.
