The monthly series for local and independent artists features “There’s Nobody at the Bridge,” Arie Lombardozzi’s half-hour documentary about paranormal investigators in Erie County, focusing on the legendary Gudgeonville Bridge. Also screening are several shorts featuring writer, actor and comedian Tristan Reid; three selected episodes of filmmaker Alistair McQueen’s “The Nomi Darling Show,” featuring Reid’s drag persona, combine a look at Pittsburgh’s burlesque scene with sketch comedy about Nomi attempting to learn burlesque. The May 12 program, curated by Matthew R. Day, also features two slickly produced shorts by veteran filmmaker Steve Parys. “Breakage,” with Tressa Glover, recounts a love affair; the romantic comedy “Lightheaded,” written by and starring Caroline Collins, depicts a depressed woman who acquires an especially nebby guardian angel.
