The Good, The Bad, & The Strange


Gravity is a mistake. The dead are hiding secrets. Any problem can be solved with enough firepower and attitude.

These are just a few of the themes explored in this month’s Motion For Pictures, which features stunning work from eight local, international, and female filmmakers. Fun, thrilling, and thought-provoking, M4P continues its landmark run as the premiere showcase of independent cinematic talent.

Join us at 7pm, Wednesday, September 6 at the Cary Theater for the show and stick around for a Q&A afterward. Refreshments are available at BREW Cary and every M4P ticket gets you 15% off any food item at Crosstown Pub & Grill.
