Oskar Blues and Carolina Cinemas have teamed up for the CANnes Film Festival: A short-film contest. While submissions are still being accepted at press time (the deadline is May 21), the idea is pretty simple: “Make a short film featuring an Oskar Blues beer can (or two, or 10) and win a chance to brew your own beer with one of our brewers in Brevard and have a beer release party at the brewery with some of your friends,” explains a press release. Screen the short films (all five minutes or less) at a special Beer Week event held in the Cinema Lounge of Carolina Cinemas on Wednesday, May 28, at 7 p.m. Free. carolinacinemas.com.
