Glitter Films is a non-syndicated independent film festival that shows low- to no-budget short films on a bimonthly basis at Raleigh's Artspace. This Friday, May 25 at 8 p.m., come out for Glitter Films #9, when hosts Russell Walls and Kirk Adam show short films about a historic sit-in, interracial romance, surfing, beer, alien abduction and more. If you're interested in submitting a film for a future screening, check out the Glitter Films Web site at Call 821-2787 for details.

DiamondDiamondDiamondIn 1993, three 8-year-old boys in West Memphis, Arkansas, were beaten, tied up and drowned. Three local teenagers believed to be Satan worshippers--because of their long hair, black attire, and love of heavy metal music--were subsequently charged with the murders. When a bevy of filmmakers sent by HBO to cover the case were allowed to film the courtroom proceedings, they increasingly became convinced that the teenagers were innocent and were being used as scapegoats by a small town afraid of difference. The teenagers are currently serving time in Arkansas prisons--two received life sentences and one received the death penalty.

Two documentaries produced for HBO, Paradise Lost: the Murders at Robin Hood Hills and Revelation: Paradise Lost II will be shown in the Triangle this weekend to draw attention to what the filmmakers feel is a miscarriage of justice. A four-band benefit concert will also be held Friday, June 1 at Chapel Hill's Cat's Cradle. Call 967-9053 for details. Paradise Lost will be shown at the Center for Documentary Studies in Durham, Friday, May 25 at 7:30 p.m. Call 660-3663 for details. Revelation: Paradise Lost II will be shown at the Carolina Theater in Chapel Hill on Saturday, May 26 at 11:30 p.m. Call 933-8464 for details.
