Character Project Film Series in Venice

USA Network will fuse independent film with contemporary art when they host free back-to-back public screenings of Character Project short films in a state-of-the-art, stylized screening capsule in Venice on May 20, 21 and 22 from 10am-10pm at The Brig on Abbot Kinney. The screenings are free and open to the public.

Character Project

The screening capsule, inspired by the prefab homes of Scandinavia, has been creatively adapted from a shipping container into a state-of-the-art screening room; the capsule seats 18 people and is fully air-conditioned, offering the comforts of a mini-theater with the sleek style and spectacle of an art installation.

Character Project is USA’s ongoing artistic initiative whose mission it is to explore America’s characters. USA partnered with RSA Films and Ridley & Tony Scott to create eight short films that tell compelling, quintessentially American stories through the eyes of the following eight filmmakers: R.J. Cutler, Jeff Feuerzeig, Lauri Faggioni, Bryan Poyser, Caskey, Tomás Peña/boolab, Jakob Daschek and Amie Steir. The films are also be available online at usanetwork.com.
