Falling Awake Productions and Sweet Nightmares are joining forces to present “An Evening of Short Films”, an event that combines filmmakers and films from Chicago, Illinois and Downey, California for an evening of spectacular entertainment.

Beginning at 6pm and running to about 9pm at The Epic Lounge in Downey, California “An Evening of Short Films” includes the films of Polaris Castillo and Dan Marcus. Polaris Castillo had a similar event earlier this year featuring some great films that were filmed locally in the area. This event promises to be even bigger, bolder and more entertaining by featuring some of those films (“Loveland” and “Windmill”) as well as films that were shot and produced in Chicago, Illinois. Those films, from director Dan Marcus, include “Wake” and “Streamline”. “An Evening of Short Films” will feature the exclusive Los Angeles premiere of Dan Marcus’s science-fiction short film “Streamline”.

“An Evening of Short Films” wants to celebrate the independent art community by featuring films that ordinarily wouldn’t be seen. With the film festival circuit always competitive and ever-changing, Polaris Castillo and Dan Marcus wish to bring a less formal and competitive nature to the way independent films are showcased. These filmmakers are joining forces to present an evening of films that everyone can watch and enjoy.

There will be food, drinks and a Q&A session after the screenings. The event will also feature some exclusive, never-before-seen trailers for some exciting new films that were shot in Downey and Los Angeles that are set for release later this year. Please join us for an exciting evening of entertainment and fun while we celebrate these great films from some wonderful independent filmmakers.

The event will take place at The Epic Lounge on Sunday July 20th from 6-9pm. 8239 2nd St, Downey, CA 90241
