Nine regional film and video makers will show (and in some cases tell) their work during this three-hour program. Among the higher-profile entries are Joy Lusco and Scott Kecken’s Louisville, which features Homicide star Andre Braugher (pictured); an excerpt from Tom Davenport’s video, Willa: An American Snow White, winner of a 1998 Carnegie Medal; and local documentarian Aviva Kempner’s discussion of The Life and Times of Hank Greenburg, a work in progress. Rosebud is among the sponsors of the evening, which will include five Rosebud winners and honorable mentions: Lucy Gebre-Egziabher’s Weti’s Poem, a visual interpretation of verse; Serena Lin’s Visible Traces, a video about virtual environments and their emotional content; Lydia Ann Douglas’ Nappy, a look at what African-American women do (and don’t do anymore) to their hair; Spare Change, a street incident rendered in claymation by participants in the Summer Arts Camp at the Capital Children’s Museum; and Alan Price’s Tota Pet, 3D animation made at the experimental film lab of the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Also included is Esther McBride’s Half a Day on Sunday, a documentary about Washington’s Jewish grocers of the ’30 and ’40s produced by the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington. At 7 p.m. at the Rosslyn Spectrum Theater, 1611 N. Kent Street, Arlington. $5. (703) 228-6339. (Mark Jenkins)
