Saturday: Made in Baltimore Short Film Festival

Sept. 30

Creative Alliance screens a dozen home-grown film shorts at The Patterson, showcasing the best local moving-picture talent as determined by Abbie Algar of the AFI Silver Theater and Cultural Center in Silver Spring, entrepreneur and political man-about-town Dave Troy and Matt Porterfield, the film maker, who selected the entries based on technical excellence, originality and Baltimore flavor. Among the offerings: “The Commercial for the Queen of Meatloaf” is a weird 1950s set piece with magical unrealism, “Black Jeans Whoa” features shirtless lumpy white men in jeans, drinking milk, and getting into a conflict over pants, “One Document for Hope” superimposes police scanner chatter over video from the uprising of April 2015, “Black in Blue” is a police drama about loyalty and integrity, and “David Fair Is The King” features David Fair, half founder of Half Japanese, as himself. 7:30 p.m., Creative Alliance at The Patterson, 3134 Eastern Ave., (410) 276-1651,, $10 advance, $7 members +$3 at the door.
