Aurora closed our the first half of our calendar year with a packed house for Extremely Shorts Eleven. The weekend kicked off with four hundred plus attending a "Best of" Extremely Shorts screening at
Discovery Green Park(photo provided by Arie Moghadden-thank you Arie), followed by three screenings at the Aurora home venue of new shorts from emerging film and video artists hosted by curator Ed Halter. This years top three films were David Purdie's "Astrowhirled", Sarah Grass' "I'd Rather Have a Puppy" and Brandon Van Meter's "Who I'll Be." After several hours of karaoke the final night of the festival, Aurora is ready for some much deserved R&R. Please join us again in August for Houston filmmaker Chris Nelson's screening of Toypunks. Get ready for toys, fashion, and punk rock!
