Remember when Franklin Street Station was transformed into an interactive film set in July 2017?
Community members joined actors, dancers, and Pulitzer Prize winner + Tony® nominee Lynn Nottage and Emmy® winner Tony Gerber to create THIS IS READING in collaboration with ReadingFilm.
We are pleased to announce Nottage, and Gerber are returning to Reading during October’s ReadngFilmFEST for a special screening of THIS IS READING, the documentary, at the Miller Center followed by a discussion of the impact of community art. Performances of community dancers and musicians will close the festival following the awards. Executive Director, Cammie Harris, noted, “It is truly an honor to welcome back such critically acclaimed celebrity guests for the festival this year. Their return is a testament to their commitment and belief in local community art and in growing a strong film community.”
In addition to this special event, ReadingFilmFEST will include:
- Shorts, Documentaries, and Feature Films
- StudentFEST – International Competition
- Made in Reading films
- Special screening of ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW with Shadow Cast and audience participation
