Stephen King-inspired short films at HVCC

All are welcome to attend the Dollar Baby Film Festival: Short Films Based on Short Works by Stephen King on Friday, Nov. 22 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Bulmer Telecommunications Auditorium on the Troy campus. The free event closes out the college’s Cultural Affairs Program’s fall 2019 schedule of events.

A Dollar Baby is born when Stephen King allows a fledgling filmmaker to film one of his short works for just $1, as he’s done since 1977. The festival is a rare opportunity to view short King-inspired films, including the Capital Region premier of local author and filmmaker Bryan Higby’s “Here There Be Tygers.” The 11-minute film is a liberating tale from the viewpoint of a child who sees tigers in the school restroom that was filmed on the Hudson Valley campus in March 2019.

The film festival also will include: “Paranoid” (Jay Holben, 2000, 8 min.), known to be a favorite of Stephen King; “Unmeny’s Last Case,” (Rodney Altman, 2006, 18 min.), a 1930s private detective’s life unravels; “I Know What You Need” (Shawn S. Lealos, 2005, 33 min.), a young woman is suspicious about a friend’s “too good

to be true” new boyfriend. A Q&A with Bryan Higby will follow the films.

No advance reservations are needed to attend the Dollar Baby Film Festival. Please call 518-629-8071 or email d.gardner@nullhvcc.edu for more information.
