Orpheum's own film festival

April 28, 1993|By Stephen Hunter | Stephen Hunter,Film Critic

Festivals are busting out all over. Even as the 24th annual Baltimore Film Festival winds down this weekend, the Orpheum Cinema, the rep house on Thames Street in Fells Point, is holding its third Independent Film Festival, with two programs that run through Sunday.

The festival draws entries from all over America, as well as from local film and video artists. Among the local films:

* "4 Films in 5 Minutes," by Skizz P. Cyzyk, winner of the Best in Fest award, featuring music by Blister Freak Circus.

* "Big Black Birds," by Con Petrochuk, described as "structured positive-negative images in rhythmic patterns with a sequential structure that expands."

* "Taxi Dancer," by Paul Haddad, a documentary on performers in Los Angeles.

* "Dark Cities," by Edward J. Reason and Jan McLaughlin, which examines the relationship between poetry and film.

For more information, call the Orpheum at (410) 732-4614.
