Libraries and Movies

At the spring conference for librarians held each year in Flatwoods,
“Spring Fling,” I will be presenting my intense two hours ever. First WV
filmmaker and BJ Gudmundsson will be talking about how public libraries
can help local filmmakers made local history films. They have made two
so far and are starting a third. Next, Jean Battlo, McDowell County
author, playwright, and filmmaker will present “Smilin Sid,” discuss her
new history of the county, and maybe show some of her 18-hour doc on the
floods of 2001. Third, Mari-Lynn Evans, Braxton County native, will talk
about her almost $2 million history of Appalachia that will air on PBS
next fall. Finally, I will be premiering a new doc on “The Library in
Crisis,” a new film by Canadian filmmaker Julian Samuel. ( I have been
working with Samuel on pt.2 of this film, exploring the international
and American angles on the crisis. The first mainly covers Canadian
realities.) Also coming as a late addition is Bryson Vannostrand, the
Buckhannon architect who has opened WV’s first micro-cinema, the Lascaux
Micro-Theater. If you want to come to the event, contact me at:
1-800-642-9021 X 2015 or e-mail me. I really believe that there is no
reason why every county in the world cannot work with local filmmakers
and create their own local history film projects.
