LEWISTON — At 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 16, Maine Microcinema will screen “How to Make Movies at Home” which is the quintessential DIY movie – a self-reflexive comedy about ordinary people making movies that star themselves. The screening will take place at Guthries.

Jonah’s band of local DIY filmmakers is threatened when a Hollywood team comes to sign Hillport, Maine, as a location for a big TV show. Jonah goes to war with Hollywood, but her real problems might be with her best friend, who has designs on the Hollywood producer’s girlfriend.

With practical lessons on cinema craft woven throughout, “How to Make Movies at Home” is a wild, infectious celebration of the DIY world and a proud instigator for a new value system in the world of movies.

Dan Adams, one of the creators, will be in attendance to introduce the work and participate in a question and answer at the conclusion of the screening.

She Doesn’t Like Guthries is at 115 Middle Street. Admission is free.
