Mini-Film Festival #25: Cirque de Livre 2017

I had a blast at writers' conference Cirque du Livre last year, programming a set of short films around the theme of books and authors, which opens up stories about stories, the power of imagination and the impact of words. That set played well and I knew I had to find some astounding films to constitute a follow-up set this year.

The venue was again the Volstead Pub in downtown Mesa, which is a coffee house. Only one film was from Arizona, The Mutable Life of Oscar Clark, which was made at Northern Arizona University. The lead actor, Jaron Druyon, kindly attended to support his film and do a Q&A after the set. Thanks, Jaron!
