Headlining todays First Thursdays at Deans is Lance Larsons award-winning Bloom. The suspenseful love story captured among many others Best Short at the Hollyshorts Film Festival and Best USA Short at the Jacksonville Film Festival. In it, a used-car lot bookkeeper falls for a scrappy, good-looking guard. When she turns his eyes away from the security cameras, tragedy strikes, but the real drama is delivered with what else? an unexpected twist at the end. The Houston Film Commissions monthly screening will feature a lineup of dramatic shorts from its Texas Filmmakers Showcase. Bloom screens after the other shorts Imprint by Val Blumreich, Kid by Miguel Alvarez and Muertas by Ryan Williams start the night off at 8:30 p.m. Deans Credit Clothing, 316 Main.
