Join Houston Cinema Arts Society’s 7th annual Julydoscope for a picnic-perfect* evening of music, poetry, and film on Saturday, July 15, at Discovery Green®. Hosted by Houston’s own Ernie Manouse, the space-inspired event will kick off at 7 PM with trivia, giveaways, and free poems upon request by the Inprint Poetry Buskers. As the sun sets, sit back and enjoy a live saxophone quartet concert by MUSIQA and a family-friendly compilation of CineSpace short films. *Bring your own basket of delectables or pick something up from a selection of food trucks at Discovery Green.
CineSpace is a collaboration between NASA and Houston Cinema Arts Society (HCAS) that offers filmmakers around the world a chance to share their works inspired by, and using, actual NASA imagery through “CineSpace,” a short film competition. Winners are announced and screened along with all finalists at the annual Houston Cinema Arts Festival which is held in November.
