Say what? Is this not our beloved Mr. B showing movies at the Lakefront?
No, it appears there’s a new kid in town this summer. The Lakefront Film Festival has a Twitter account, (@LakefrontFest) a website (not totally fleshed out) and it appears that they plan to:
...feature over 25 new independent multicultural narrative features, documentaries, animation, experimental, web-series, short films as well as studio sneak previews screening in several beautiful venues within the Town Center. Visiting filmmakers and celebrities will interact with appreciative audiences at screenings and special events.
Does anyone out there in readerland know anything about this? It doesn’t appear to be a part of the Columbia Festival of the Arts. I don’t think it’s part of the Movies at Merriweather, or the multicultural film fest at the Chrysalis. So who are these people who are throwing a Film Festival and want people to buy “Festival Packages” to see them?
I don’t know. I’m curious. Also, a side note: this poster features the American City Building. I had heard rumors that the plan is to demolish it. Where does that stand?
