8:30 PM Sunday, July 25

Free Livestream

Because of worrisome trends in Covid-19 infection in Missouri, Cinema St. Louis has decided to place safety first and to cancel the in-person closing-night event originally scheduled.

Instead, join us in celebrating the local filmmaking scene with a free livestream of the Showcase’s Closing-Night Awards Presentation. Cinema St. Louis artistic director Chris Clark will announce the Showcase films chosen for inclusion in the Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival, and the juries will present an array of awards, including a $500 prize — underwritten by the Chellappa-Vedavalli Foundation — to the Best Showcase Film. In addition, the livestream will feature special performances by Circus Harmony and by participating filmmakers, rappers, and real-life brothers Yc Bey and Lacey Turner.  

The Closing-Night Awards Presentation is presented by Capes Sokol. The entertainment and media attorneys at Capes Sokol help creators, producers, and distributors protect their works and realize their visions.
