Desert Dust Cinema 2016 documentation

By Concert, Desert, Documentation, Filmfestival


The fourth Desert Dust Cinema in Lobo/Texas had 34 international short films screened in two programs on two nights. For the first time since many years, the area of the kidneyshaped pool near the former motel was part of our illuminated festival ground.

After the screenings we had performances by Oortstorm, Jalin Malin, Gary Bear, Elegant Rabies, Eric Schlappi, Igloo Martian, Good Times Great Oldies, Ben Scheffler & XNOR and DJ Kate. Again, a big ‘thank you’ to all participating filmmakers, musicians and all our friends, neighbors and new guests – hope to meet you again next time.

Phoenix Modernism Week

Some of our acrylic prints will be part of the opening show of the Phoenix Modernism Week in April 2016. It’s a group exhibition called “MOD-AZ” and celebrates mid-century architecture and design, reflecting the Arizona Community.

The show will take place at Chartreuse located in Bragg’s Pie Factory, 1301 NW Grand Ave, part of the Lower Grand Avenue Arts & Small Business district in downtown Phoenix. MOD-AZ will open on Friday, April 1 2016, 6-10pm, through Saturday April 16th.

But there’s even more to announce: We’re also taking part in the “Modern Marketplace” on Saturday April 9th, 11am – 5pm, held at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. Website says: “Meet contemporary interior designers, landscapers, furniture designers, green builders, architects, historians, preservationists and other professionals”, so this might be fun…
