Thinking about space has no limits, and that was likely on the minds of filmmakers who’ve had a chance to make submissions to the CineSpace competition over the years. The seventh annual JULYDOSCOPE showcases a bunch of those entries as well as recent competition winners, screened under the stars at Discovery Green by presenter Houston Cinema Arts Society. Creators were allowed to make shorts built around 50 years of NASA archival footage, with more than a dozen flicks and multiple genres. But JULYDOSCOPE is more than just spaced-out movies. We’ll also hear poems from Poetry Buskers, live sax music from Musiqa, and even some star searching. “We’re all going to be in an outer-space mood; we’re going to have some people with telescopes there. Hopefully we’ll be able to see something,” says Patrick Kwiatkowski, the society’s executive director.

7 p.m. July 15. 1500 McKinney. For information, call 713-429-0420 or visit cinemartsociety.org. Free.
