Following the Youth Short Film Screenings & Panel Discussion, The Screening Room will feature Kevin Smith's 1994 comedyCLERKS. The Screening Room staff and the Kingston Youth Arts Council selected this classic 1990's film because of its ultra-low budget of around 28,000 USD, and because it was filmed in the store Smith actually worked in. Moreover, he was 24 at the time of its production. The film seems to exhibit many of the qualities of young, independent film-making that will be the focus for the evening, and hopefully a source of inspiration for young Kingston film artists.
