Hip-hop/spoken-word artist SCEF isn't afraid to mix it up - on- and off-stage. Maybe that's why the film The Artform Group Presents Spoken Word Poetic includes music, art and, of course, spoken-word artistry. SCEF, Element 615, Deep Blu See and Poetic Chocolate, among others, make appearances in Spoken Word Poetic, either in concert or in music video-like segments. Those are intermingled with interviews with the artists commenting on their own aspirations and the state of Houston's poetry scene. Today's screening will be accompanied by live music performances by several participants in the film, including Joe Lee McCoy and Gia, as well as a spoken-word competition. 7 p.m. Alamo Drafthouse/West Oaks, 1000 West Oaks Mall. For information, call 281-920-9211 or visit www.drafthouse.com/westoaks. $10.
