Conceived by Alex Morrison and Brent Smith, the Foxgrape Film Series features a diverse body of film making.
The works are by those who rarely have the opportunity to be screened, giving a voice to a large body of work by local and national filmmakers. The hope is to have a venue where both the community and the students of Oberlin College can discuss and view films in a relaxed atmosphere.
The screenings occur weekly at around 9:00, and feature full bar service along with complimentary snacks.
Alex Morrison is a freelance filmmaker/cinematographer/photographer based in Oberlin, Ohio. He is a graduate of Ithaca College with a Bachelor's Degree in Cinema and Photography. He has created seven short films, including an award winning short "Meditations on Being Human," and a short experimental documentary studying the qualities inherent in motherhood.
Alex has also become an accomplished event photographer and has an interest in environmental, social, and human interest stories.
He is currently working as a freelance photography assistant for agencies in Cleveland Ohio, and has created The Foxgrape Film Series in affiliation with the Microcinema movement. The Microcinema movement supports small cinemas with a desire to show the diverse range of filmmaking which is rarely seen in mainstream media. The works are created by those who infrequently have the opportunity to be screened, giving a voice to a large body of work by local and national filmmakers.
