Special Guest Announcement: Lexi Bass, Director of WAXING

lexibass

We’re stoked to announce that Lexi Bass, Director of the film WAXING will be participating in the Short Filmmaker Q&A session on Saturday, October 8th! Here’s a little about the filmmaker:

Born in 1981, Lexi Bass experienced a short bout with epilepsy as a child. As a result, her artistic output stems from a fascination with neurology and Jungian psychology, visualizing interior experiences of mind. A quietly contrarian feminist response to societal power structures, her work is sensitive to predator/prey relationships, evolutionary instinct, nightmares and dreams. Since 2004, her career took professional turns through technical theatre, video production, and graphic design. Most recently employed by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, she has served the last four years as Digital Instructional Specialist and part-time design instructor for the Department of Art and Art History.

Lexi will be one of a number of filmmakers to be announced in the coming weeks!  Head over to the Tickets page and pre-order your Weekend Pass for the low price of $10.00 to see this and a ton of other awesome Nebraska films! All weekend passes come with free popcorn and soda vouchers, discounts to local restaurants, free access to the Bonzai Blowout rock show after party on Saturday, October 8th, and a free DVD sampler (if ordered by September 4th) of local films!
