A night of local film and local art and local music — well, local in the sense that you’ll be singing it. First, enjoy a collection of short films put together by the Carolina Film Community, including The Hidden, winner of Charlotte’s 2016 100 Words Film Festival. There’s also an award-winning short film called Shit being screened, so that can’t be bad. Follow the films up with a game of “Soundtrack Karaoke,” during which it’s safe to say at least three people will sign up to sing “My Heart Will Go On.” Free.
Open to the public, uninstructed figure drawing sessions are held at The North Carolina Academy of Art every Wednesday from 7-9pm. $10.00http://www.ncacademyofart.com
