Two free film events for Labor Day Weekend


A few months back I told you about local filmmaker Anthony Greene and his short film anthology A World At Work. Anthony has two new events this week, once again bringing culture to the East side of the Anacostia.

The first is Art Behind the Art, an exhibition at Blank Space SE of behind-the-scenes photography from local film sets. There will be an opening reception at the gallery this Friday September 2 at 7PM. The show will run for a week and coincide with Anthony's second event, The East of the River Film Festival.

The East of the River Film Festival is free to the public and will run from noon to 10PM on Saturday September 3 at TheARC. A selection of local short films and feature films will screen including Adams Morgan – The Movie, a drama centered around the famous D.C. neighborhood, and Lorenzo and Monica L.A.F.S., an urban Bonnie and Clyde starring Tray Chaney, “Poot” from The Wire. Take a look at the trailer for Lorenzo and Monica L.A.F.S. here.

Come out and support local filmmakers and culture East of the River!

Blank Space SE is located at 1922 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, SE. TheARC is located at 1901 Mississippi Avenue, SE.
