Third Coast brings acclaimed Filmless Festival to Avalon Island

Posted By on Fri, Apr 22, 2016 at 6:40 PM

The Third Coast International Audio Festival curates recorded stories from around the world and gets them out to as many people as possible. Think NPR’s StoryCorps, but a little more global. The organization puts together a weekly radio show, “Re:sound,” on WBEZ Chicago (also the home station of your mom’s favorite quiz show, “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me”), along with a weekly podcast, but this is the first time they’re bringing their live Filmless Festival event to anywhere outside of Chicagoland.

Over two days, Scott Carrier, Sarah Geis and Maya Goldberg-Safir – a trio with at least one more Peabody Award than any other trio you know – present their Podcast Therapy workshop, in which audience members describe their problems and are prescribed specific podcasts to help them out; screen curated audio works from around the world accompanied by custom animation in Scott Carrier’s Writing on the Stall presentation; and even teach you how to start your own podcast if you have an idea but no clue where to start. It’s just the kind of weekend that might serve as the beginning of your own story. 

6 and 8 p.m. Saturday, 10 a.m. Sunday | The Gallery at Avalon Island, 37 S. Magnolia Ave. | | $12-$50
