Central Kentucky Cinema Society: Vomit Project - A Quite So. Experiment (Gallery Hop: 9/17); Ripe for Change (Downtown Public Library: 9/22)

CKCS @ Gallery Hop

Beginning September 19th, the Central Kentucky Cinema Society will be screening works from local filmmakers at each of the gallery hops in downtown Lexington. All screenings will be held during gallery hop hours at the Downtown Art Center (next to AlfAlfa's on Main). Visit for more information on the gallery hop.

Vomit Project - A Quite So. Experiment

About the Project: Twelve Lexington based filmmakers collaborated on a series of films from a single idea. The artists produced their films without the aid of professional equipment, as these resources are not readily available to most filmmakers in the area. The films were shot at various locations in Lexington primarily using members of Quite So. Films as cast and crew.
