Just a reminder that Royal Flush opens its festival this week in, and around, the East Village of our fair city. Great program, some really original stuff that you won't see at too many other fests. Celebrating the artist and the dreamer in all of us would be the main theme I would take away from the current program. And which one of us couldn't do with a good dose of that now and then? Here's the program of the films, art happenings and musical performances going on October 15 - 19.
Also want to plug the panel I'm hosting again since it's chock-full of some of the best filmmakers around these days. It helps if you're a doc fan, but anyone who loves great cinema will have a swell time participating in a conversation with Ross Kauffman, Laura Poitras, Ian Olds, Eric Daniel Metzgar and Andrew Berends. That's some heavy talent, so come out and chat with us on Sunday the 18th at 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. at the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural Center on Suffolk Street. It's free with your festival pass or just 5 bucks if you don't have a pass. But you should get a pass. Hope to see you there.
