Le Spring Film Festival de Mobile Phone
. The mobile phone movie fest features an hourlong screening of 12 to 15 films from filmmakers of any/no experience level. “Short films” are three minutes or less; anything more is considered a “feature.” Winners of the quarterly fest, now in its third edition, receive prizes and a photograph taken in front of a Sundance-looking step and repeat. Wittels Wachs is thinking about making her film debut. “I have great footage of my kid eating pasta from ages zero to three,” she says. Might it be “feature” length? “Probably. She eats a lot of pasta.” 8 p.m. March 22. Rec Room, 100 Jackson. For information, call 713-344-1291 or visit recroomhtx.com
