Local Filmmakers Feed at the Udder of a Scary Cow (Film Festival)

Aspiring young directors have a choice these days: drop a serious wad on film school, or put the dough into making a feature, where they get a real-world, sink-or-swim education. Scary Cow, our town's pioneering filmmaking co-op, offers a middle path. For a monthly fee, members are encouraged to pitch projects, form crews, and collaborate on short films. Every four months, the latest crop of finished works is publicly screened — the next round happens Saturday at the Castro — with the audience voting for its favorites. Forget about some crummy certificate — all prizes are cash, meaning the winners instantly have the start of a budget for their next films.
