Nampa Art Collective originally hosted the Winter Film Series as a way to feed the creative spirit during the long dark days of winter here in Nampa. The movement behind the series is to show film as an expressive artistic medium. The event was free and open to the public at the Nampa Elks Lodge, The Flying M Coffee Garage, and Track 13. With host Diana Forgione going into the depths of directors’ intentions, genre advantages, foreign films, visual purpose, art direction and narrative throughout the series. Provoking shared experiences, a discussion of the film by host and attendees were held immediately following the screening.
This event is now hosted by a spin off group called Death Rattle Writers Festival. They can be contacted via their website for current information.
