While a/perture is temporarily closed, we’re bringing some highlights of streetside cinema to you for free at home—sofa side cinema! Check out some of our favorite selections below from our first two seasons, featuring animation, documentary, and narrative short films from around the world!

The mission of streetside cinema is to further engage and entertain the community in the magic of cinema through our free outdoor micro-cinema by featuring an ongoing curated festival of short films from across the state, over the country, and around the world.

streetside cinema proudly accepts entries on FilmFreeway, the world’s #1 way to enter film festivals and creative contests.

In normal times, just look for the streetside logo right outside of a/perture cinema on 4th street, and you’ll be in the right place. Pull up a stool, grab a mini-popcorn from the concession counter and watch some free films. Each program of short films will run on a loop throughout the day and will screen for approximately two weeks.
