Just your typical independent filmmaker, animator, vfx specialist, and creative content developer! I enjoy long walks on the beach while staring into my cell-phone screen and watching episodes of Black Mirror.
The jury has spoken! Our goal was to select the best films across a variety of genres that fit into the theme and vibe of Suds & Cinema: good production quality, entertaining/exciting, and fun to watch.
…Before we get into it, we should all take a moment to thank our festival jury: Jeremy Borden, Mike Neider, and Jeremy Allen for taking the time to view, rate, review, and curate the official film selections for the first ever Suds & Cinema film festival!
And this was no simple task– As we received so many great film submissions! Some film submissions were technically fantastic, but were not selected simply based on the fact they may not fit into this particular event program. Which is to say– I WISH WE WERE ABLE TO SHOWCASE EVERY SUBMISSION WE RECEIVED!
But I digress. The list below is of all of the awesome official film selections of Suds & Cinema on March 9th, 2019.F

Our submission window has now closed. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SUBMITTED A SHORT FILM TO THE FIRST EVER SUDS & CINEMA FILM FESTIVAL!
As with every new venture, CinemaSlice approached this event with vigor and excitement– but also with caution and healthy hesitation. There were two critical elements that issues that helped to propel us head-first as we began to organize this event: an awesome venue and a great festival jury.
The first step was to find a brewery that could accommodate a film event. After exploring many options, we landed with HopYard 62 in Grove City, OH. The venue is small and intimate, the brewery has 21 taps, and the owner of the brewpub is welcoming and accommodating!
A close #2 (hehe number two) is our festival jury. Made up of 3 enthusiastic Ohio Filmmakers, Mike, Jeremy, and Jeremy 2 watched and reviewed each film submission as they rolled in over the last 3 months–We held multiple meetings to discuss highlights and exchange notes, and ultimately select our festival programing.
With a great location and jury in-place, CinemaSlice simply deferred to the filmmakers of the world to submit their art for us to display at our gallery! We received so many great films! Seriously, narrowing our selections down to fill only an hour and a half of programing is CHALLENGING!
As we finalize the last minute details, we want to invite all of the Slicers and appreciators of independent cinema to come out to the first ever SUDS & CINEMA Film Festival event.

Before getting to far ahead of myself, what is Suds & Cinema? Well, thanks for asking! SUDS & CINEMA is a celebration of independent film and craft beer.

This film presentation will be chalked full of awesome independent films from the Mid-Ohio region and beyond– and the 21 taps will be flowing with tasty craft beers all night long!

CinemaSlice is proud to present “Art Lives On” A Collection of Original Music by David Waldman.
Over the past year David has written and recorded a new song each month for Slicers to serenade their ears in bliss. Every month David unleashed another song unto the SlicerVerse for our enjoyment! Like a balanced pendulum, these sonic manifestations were dropped on our heads one-by-one, like a slippery newborn.

CinemaSlice presents: 4 new episodes of the 360-video docu-series, “Conversations with Strangers” by John Sklba.
John Sklba has done a bang-up job with this series up until now– but I assure you, the best is yet to come!
Most of us walk passed complete strangers every day, and never give that person a second thought– primarily because we’re all wrapped up in our own life– as we should be! We’re all the ‘star’ or ‘primary character’ in our individual story. But, Sklba (TN) has decided to take a moment out to meet and start a conversation with complete strangers in this series (Hence the title, Conversations with Strangers).
CinemaSlice will be releasing new interviews each and every week from Nov 19th – Dec 10th.
CinemaSlice wants to THANK a group of talented musicians by releasing a new compilation of music, known as MUSIC MIXTAPE VOL 50!

CLICK HERE to download the Music Mixtape Vol. 50 for free.
Turn up your head phones and zone out to J Dirty, Kemikill, Josh Alvarez, Austin-Michael Riley, Johnny Zuko, Alphabetics, Johnny ZER0, Clay Armor, Amp D (RIP), Peso, Chad Frey, Austin Schreiber, Dowsabel, Quest the Catalyst and Jaysues, 13 Dead, War Clown, and Peter Felicano.
