Calendar Features

As part of Cinema Pacific’s Schnitzer Cinema program, film historian Dennis Nyback will recreate in real-time the 1961 presentation of Heaven and Earth Magic, a feature-length animated film by Portland-born producer Harry Smith, whose most famous work is the vaunted Anthology of American Folk Music. Nyback, a founding member of the Oregon Cartoon Institute (yes, you heard correctly … we have a cartoon institute!), will shuttle between several film and slide projectors in order to create the layered images that played on screen during the original showing of Smith’s film — a strange, surreal story about a woman, a watermelon and a toothache.

Dennis Nyback performs his live projection of Harry Smith’s Heaven and Earth Magic 7pm Wednesday, Nov. 5, at UO’s Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art; $5, $3 for seniors and free for students, faculty, JSMA members and anyone under the age of 18.

It might be those pseudo-geeky spectacles, or songs with titles like “Unfuckwittable” and “Soundtrack 2 My Life,” or maybe it’s the fact that he’s playing Matthew Knight Arena, of all venues — but any way you cut it, there’s something about Kid Cudi that puts the emphasis on “kid.” His all-too-cleverly titled debut mixtape, “A Kid Named Cudi,” carries sentimental value for many a 20-something who remembers listening to it while getting high in her parents’ basement after coming home from long days of high school. In fact, since Cudi hasn’t come out with anything too great since, this attachment to his sing-along-ready melodies and borderline satirically simple beat production is one of the only perceptible reasons why he’s still so prominent in the circuit of consistently touring hip-hop names. If for no other reason, though, a Cudi show is worth it for the throwback.

Kid Cudi plays Matthew Knight Arena 7:30pm Thursday, Nov. 6; $35-$49.50.

The post-Halloween hangover is a horrifyingly familiar thing — vile, vivid and persistent as all hell. This time around, though, instead of ordering a Papa John’s pizza for only yourself, there’s another way to push through the pain: the soothing sound of poetry recited out loud. Portland poet Willa Schneberg and Eugene poet Ingrid Wendt read from their published works 5pm Saturday, Nov. 1, at Tusnami Books (2585 Willamette St.). And the very next night, Nov. 2, local poets Karen McPherson and Tim Shaner celebrate recently published collections with a joint reading 7pm at the Maude Kerns Art Center (1910 E. 15th Ave).

Most folks might let DÍa de los Muertos pass by unnoticed, but the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art is celebrating this beautiful, deathly holiday in style. Every night of this four-day annual celebration will feature live music from local groups, dancing and Spanish poetry recitation, accompanied by a special exhibition of works by contemporary artists from Guanajuato, Mexico (Octavio Bajonero’s untitled woodblock print, pictured). A traditional Day of the Dead ofrenda will be constructed by local students as well, on view for the duration of the celebration. The event, co-sponsored by MEChA de UO, Adelante SÍ, el INstituto de Cultura de Guanajuato and el Instituto Estatal del Migrante Guanajuatense y sus familias, will run Oct. 29 through Nov. 2 at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art.

Anyone who participated in last year’s 72-Hour Horror Film Competition hosted by Bijou Metro and the Eugene Film Society (EFS), in which amateur and professional filmmakers vied to create a winning three-minute scary movie in just three days, can attest to the heady thrill of writing, directing and editing a short movie on the fly. On Thursday, Oct. 23, folks interested in all things cinematic are urged to attend this year’s EFS 72-Hour Horror Film Competition Kick-Off, a meet-and-greet where you can pitch a script, talk movies or perhaps be recruited to act in a spooky movie or splatter flick.

Come on down and hobnob with local film types (including EW’s Rick Levin, director of 2013 competition entry La Petite Mort, pictured) at the EFS kick-off party 5-8pm Thursday, Oct. 23, at Sam Bond’s Brewing Co., 540 E. 8th Ave., where competing filmmakers will be given their mandated line of dialogue and prop for their short horror film.

Calendar Submission Guidelines:

 

Calendar publication days are every Thursday. Due date for the calendar is the Thursday before the Thursday issue in which you would like your event published. Our What's Happening calendar is an eight-day calendar, Thursday to Thursday, while our music listings calendar is a seven-day calendar, Thursday to Wednesday. 

Example: If your event happens on Wednesday, Aug. 20, your listing would appear in our Aug. 14 issue, and the listing would be due to the calendar editor on Thursday, Aug. 7. Events that happen on Thursdays may be listed in two issues if the listing is submitted on time.

To facilitate organizing our calendar listings, please send your information as text in the body of the email  to cal@eugeneweekly.com, and attach only pertinent photos as high resolution jpg files, 1MB or larger. Attaching high resolution pictures greatly increases your chances of getting featured in our weekly calendar.

Sending information mixed with images descriptions, formatting and attachments makes locating the information difficult for our calendar writers, so please send all information in text, at the top of your message. Label all photos with the name of what is pictured or the event.

At the bottom of the email feel free to add extra information and details in case we can expand on your listing a little.

The closer you are to our listing format, the better the chance of your listing getting in the way you want it!

 

For WHAT'S HAPPENING

The calendar lists free events and special, one-time events that charge admission. We list one-time workshops under $15, but do not list ongoing classes or workshops that charge any sort of fee.

The What's Happening Calendar no longer accepts submissions regarding music; please submit these in a separate email to the Music Listings calendar  outlined below.

To list in our calendar: Place the date (example: July 15, 2014)  in the subject line of your message. 

At the top of the message, include briefly and without extra description:

Event name, time, location, address and cost.

Refer to our online calendar listings for the format. For times, am and pm are always lowercased, and we use & instead of and.
