For the eleventh year in a row Great Basin College brings several independent films to town for moviegoers who enjoy something out of the ordinary. All films begin at 7 p.m. with tickets ($7 for the general public and $6.50 for students and senior citizens) available for purchase 45 minutes before the film starts. The only exception is the February 11 showing of short films where tickets go on sale January 11 at the Duncan LittleCreek Gallery and will also be sold at the door prior to the movie. As in past years, local culinary sponsors offer appetizers prior to the movie. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. at GBC and tables for appetizers will be set up in the solarium adjacent to the theater.
Films, culinary hosts and sponsors follow:
For this movie, a “Battle of the Food Trucks” begins at 5:30 pm in the GBC Theater parking lot. Culinary sponsors will offer “tastes” off their menus, but movie-goers can also purchase dinner items and enjoy their meal at tables in the GBC solarium adjacent to the theater. Featured trucks include Guerilla Craft Eats, Las Brisas and Tony’s Tacos.
The GBC Film Committee welcomes all independent film lovers interested in selecting next year’s films to contact committee chair Russ Minter at 775-777-6093.
“Our goal is to bring great films to Elko that have not appeared in local theaters for all film fans to enjoy,”
The Film Festival is just one of several cultural events sponsored by the GBC Arts and Cultural Enrichment Committee. Information about upcoming events can be found at http://www.gbcnv.edu/ace.
