Sizeable shorts selection

Last weekend dozens of film crews raced around Albuquerque attempting to write, shoot and edit dozens of digital shorts in only two days. This was not some form of mass hysteria. Instead it was just another installment of the annual 48 Hour Film Project. If you want to see what sort of variations on a theme these talented local teams were able to come up with, you can head over to Go Fast, Go Wild: 2013 48 Hour Film Project at KiMo Theatre. On Thursday, July 18, and Friday, July 19, KiMo will feature each and every film (56 in total!) shot during this year’s moviemaking marathon. There will be two screenings on Thursday (6 and 8 p.m.) and two on Friday (6 and 8 p.m.). Upwards of 15 different films will be shown at each screening. Admission to the individual screenings will run you $10, but you can get into all four of them for a mere $32. For a complete rundown of the teams and when their films will be showing, go to Tickets are available now at

They’ll be stopping by Albuquerque’s Guild Cinema on Tuesday, July 23, to scare up interest in their work. The film is directed by professional ghost hunter Chad Calek (of A&E’s “Paranormal State” and “The Ghost Prophecies”). It chronicles Calek’s “extremely dangerous experiment” involving global consciousness (and, one would presume, lots of ghosts) conducted in northern England’s notoriously haunted Chillingham Castle. There are multiple levels of tickets you can purchase through EventBrite—from the basic $15 film ticket to the $150 VIP Pass (which nets you a private meet-and-greet with the cast and crew, select seating at the event, autographed photos, a one-hour paranormal evidence presentation, a post-film Q&A, a “Ghost Story” post-event party aboard the A Blood Red Sky tour bus and a whole bunch more). To reserve one of these frighteningly limited tickets, got to

Seeking spiritual stars
