Filmmakers Carlton Ahrens and Ford Gunter took one of Houstons most popular annual events from the street to the silver screen with Art Car: The Movie. The two amassed nearly 250 hours of footage, including interviews with past Art Car Parade Grand Marshals Dan Aykroyd and George Clinton, as well as insight from more than 50 artists and participants. Ahrens and Gunter will be on hand to show clips of their feature-length film and discuss the project as part of CAMH Video Jam.
The event also features a discussion and screening with filmmaker John Carrithers. 6:30 p.m. Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, 5216 Montrose. For information, call 713‑284‑8250 or visit www.camh.org. Free.
