Filmmaking With a Message
All Sidewalk Salon’s are sponsored by PostGenie.
Virginia Newcomb – Actor/Producer
After spending most of her career in Los Angeles, Alabama native, Virginia Newcomb has recently returned to her home state to make films. Three Fingers is Virginia’s first self produced film and expresses her ultimate goal as an artist, to portray women honestly, adequately, and often. Her acting work spans all media from indie features (Reparation, Theatre Bizarre) to working alongside talents like Cillian Murphy and Steve Carell. She has performed in numerous plays on the west coast and 2014 held Virginia’s Broadway debut in Jay Scheib’s live cinema production of Platonov, or The Disinherited which live streamed to Time Square and BAM. Her role as filmmaker continues to expand while seeking bold, evocative artists and thriving in collaborative risk taking projects, particularly in nontraditional southern narrative. Upcoming projects in Alabama include Fated To Repeat, Union, and producing her first indie feature.
Paul D. Hart – Writer/Director
Born in Louisville, KY, Paul grew up all throughout the southeast before relocating to California. He studied at the Los Angeles Film School graduating with honors while attaining an editing major and directing minor. Since that time, Hart has worked as a professional in the filmmaking community for more than a decade, not only as a writer and director, but as a skilled gaffer and cinematographer. His current film, Three Fingers, is early in its festival run having already garnered multiple jury awards. Currently, he is developing two-indie features while penning a pilot script for an episodic series.
Doors open at 6:00pm, presentation begins at 7:00pm.
Admission is FREE and our friends at Rojo will be providing complimentary chips and salsa. Full menu and bar available.
