First-of-its-kind national traveling film exhibition will screen new shorts in late August 2017.

BOSTON — Auspicious Phoenix Productions LLC, an independent studio production and photography company that specializes in film, announced today it will screen its 2017 slate of short films on a continent-spanning US theatrical roadshow from August 20 to September 10, 2017.

A throwback to the days of the traveling roadshow, the Rolling Revue gives new life to the time-honored event, paying homage to all the glory of the roadshow — audiences can expect 16mm movie projections, slide photo carousels, and practical effects movie magic brought right to their doorstep. The old and the new collide to present a truly one of a kind event, featuring movies never to be released or distributed again.


The tour lineup represents a collection of diverse narratives and visions from a talented group of filmmakers — all of whom are alumni of Boston University’s Cinema & Media Production graduate or undergraduate programs:

QUIETUS (dir. Joy Song)
LADIA (dir. Álvaro Congosto)
BLOOD HIGHWAY (dir. Joseph Dwyer)
CRANIAC! (dir. Paul Villanova)
THE LITERAL LENS (dir. Jim DanDee)

Tour dates and venues are as follows:

August 20 – New York City, NY – The Living Gallery
August 24 – Houston, TX – Apama Mackey Gallery
August 27 – Los Angeles, CA – 5 Points Studio
August 31 – Denver, CO – ReCreative Denver
