Gypsy’s Coffee House sponsored a short film night featuring local filmmakers. Area cinematographers made the films. The movies titles ranged from comedy, horror, and drama to much more.
Local film producer Lisandro Boccacci hosted a weekly event during December at the Gypsy Coffee House, 303 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. On every Monday during the month and in partnership with Indie Showcase, he presented different short films, “Night at the Gypsy Coffee House.”
In addition to the opportunity to see the films, one of the cool things I found when walking through the door was that I did not expect Gypsy to go all out with the Christmas decorations. The holiday display included a model train that you could hear throughout the bar area. Also, the coffee house had a wide selection of specials during the month from peppermint-flavored hot cocoa, Gingerbread Chai Latte, Midnight Snowstorm Latte, and Christmas cookies.
The free film festival was for all ages. Including the varied film topics, the featured films presented were award-winning, student-produced, and from up-and-coming filmmakers. There were 13 films I watched. I absolutely enjoyed seeing them.
Below are the ones that piqued my interest.
