Firehouse Films

Firehouse Films is dedicated to exposing the community to relevant and artistic film makers the FIRST FRIDAY of every month. With your support, we are building a professional venue with the sole purpose of entertaining and educating the community with the works of talented and emerging film makers, both locally and nationally. Firehouse Films provides an opportunity for film lovers and movie-goers to enjoy cutting edge, artistic and humorous films without the drive. We believe Firehouse Films provides a culturally significant opportunity for the arts to be viewed, contemplated and discussed.

OPEN CALL FOR FILM MAKERS

Firehouse Films First Friday is inviting local and national film makers to submit several short films or one full length feature to be considered for a screening during our monthly film program. The work we are looking for is artistic and innovative. Each submission should include a brief synopsis of the film and the filmmakers creative process. Email film@firehouseart.org for more information. 

FIREHOUSE FILMS FIRST FRIDAY

kART Across America

by JEREMY MAKE & ANDY RANEY

The 100-day adventure around America by golf kart asking, "What's your art?"

SYNOPSIS
In 2008, two childhood friends from Colorado embarked on a 100-day, 6,000-mile journey around America asking people, "What's your art?"  And they did it all by golf kart. kART Across America explores what it means to be an artist in the United States, uncovering culture and creativity at 30mph.  Though the golf kart broke down nearly every day, Jeremy Make and Andy Raney were determined to meet artists from all walks of life — from three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Edward Albee to needle-felting craftswoman Jenna Catsos.  But it's the journey of uncovering your own art that's often more elusive.
