Q at KiMo

Indie Q—the Albuquerque Film Office’s networking group for local, independent filmmakers—will have its monthly meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 17. The meeting will take place at the KiMo Theatre in Downtown Albuquerque and will include screenings of several notable, recent shorts from area filmmakers. Joshua Klein will screen his music video for Monster Paws’ “Champagne Bike Ride.” Hannah Macpherson will show off the first episode of her successful web series “Date Doctor.” Brennan Foster, Reinhard Lorenz and Brent Morris’ documentary “Beauty Bend”—made for the 2010 Int’l Doc Challenge—will also be screened. Ultimatum Pictures’ entry into the 2010 National Film Challenge, “Hibiscus,” is the penultimate offering. The screening closes out with Joshua Klein’s highly polished 30-minute mini-epic “The Incredible Voyage of Captain Hook.” Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Screenings will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. This movie-filled get-together is free and open to the public, but an RSVP to is recommended. Seating is limited to first-come, first-served.

The fine folks at Trifecta+ Entertainment (makers of the award-winning 2007 short “Sweetie”) will debut their brand new, Albuquerque-lensed short film “SEND” on the Internet starting on Friday, Nov. 12. Viewers are invited to attend this “online premiere” by logging on to “SEND” is described as a “heartwarming story of a divorced mother trying to connect with her young daughter over the Internet.” We’re assuming that the “heartwarming” part is used sarcastically and that it will be creepy. Trifecta+ likes the creepy. “SEND” is directed by Scotty Milder and stars Amelia Ampuero.
