GOSHEN— Lights, camera … Goshen!
The annual River Bend Film Festival returns to Goshen May 2-4. And this year, the cinematic showcase coincides with the downtown’s monthly First Fridays celebration!
Goshen’s May First Fridays theme is Taste of Goshen, and will include a variety of international-themed food vendors.
The film festival kicks off Thursday, May 2, with a showing of Don’t Be Nice, a film about five African-American, Afro-Hispanic, and queer poets, at 7:30 p.m. at The Goshen Theater. The movie will be followed by a Q&A session with producer Nikhil Melnechuk on the theater stage. Admission is $12 or a festival pass.
First Fridays will also include Taste of the Film Festival from 5 to 8 p.m. in several downtown stores. Filmmakers will be on hand for talks, meet-and-greets, and demonstrations.
“Thanks to the River Bend Film Festival, Goshen is fast becoming known as a destination for quality cinema,” Nesbitt said. “This year’s range of screenings and other activities – combined with Taste of Goshen – make the event a must!”
