Screen The New Season Of The Film Lounge

Writer: Jeff Morgan

All the films in “The Film Lounge” started in Iowa. But where they’ll go next, who knows? One showing this year– a five-minute documentary called “Frozen Out” by University of Iowa student Hao Zhou and Iowa City filmmaker Tyler Hill– was named a 2021 Student Academy Award winner in the Alternative/Experimental category.

Now in its sixth season, “The Film Lounge” is an annual short-film showcase that celebrates the work of Iowa filmmakers, highlights the state’s vibrant film communities and explores the art of filmmaking. It’s produced by Iowa PBS in partnership with the Iowa Arts Council and Produce Iowa, whose experts curate each year’s entries based on their technical and artistic merit.

Film fans can watch past episodes on the Iowa PBS website.
