Flicker is a bi-monthly film festival whose Chapel Hill charter was started by Norwood Cheek in 1994 (finding inspiration from a Flicker Fest in Athens, Georgia). In 1997, Norwood moved to LA and set up a Flicker Festival there. Now there are Flicker Screenings happening all over the place.
The Flicker West Coast Tour features the "best of" super-8 and 16mm films from the LA chapter of Flicker -- plus films by local artists: Rachel Lord, Jason Gutz and Doug Lane. For more info check out the Flicker website.
