The Olde North Charleston Picture House is beginning its second year with a shorts festival set for Saturday, January 16th at 7 p.m. The primary theme for this set of shorts is “stories of womanhood.”

In collaboration with the Nickelodeon Theater in Columbia, nine short films will be shown:

Jiggle Jig: A woman who begins a diet is literally taunted by her Twinkies
More Control: A music video
Sunday Mornings: One woman's Sunday routine of making breakfast and phoning her grandfather, who has Alzheimer's
Swing: Animated story of an interview with a woman about seeing a lynching in her childhood
Reverie: A young girl deals with an abusive parent and the impact on her family
Gibbering Horror of Howard Ghormley: In the vein of Poe or Lovecraft stories
Incubus: Cleverly animated story about a girl who is accosted by an evil entity in her dreams
Unfettering the Falcons: Documentary about falcons--both the avian and Atlanta varieties
The World, Naked as a Jaybird: Animated story about one girl's experience after the bomb goes off

Following the films, there will be a discussion led by Tori Katherman and Andy Smith of the Nickelodeon Theater, which sponsors the annual Indie Grits Film Festival in Columbia.

The 90-minute event will be held at the South of Broadway Theater located at 1080 E. Montague Avenue in Park Circle and admission is $2 for members and $5 for non-members.
