The Somerville Arts Council and Somerville Media Center present an ArtsUnion and Cinema Somerville Film Fest during the Somerville Open Studios weekend on Saturday, May 6th from 7:30-9:30pm held in Union Square plaza or indoors at SCATV (in case of inclement weather).
To celebrate the City of Somerville’s 175th Birthday, this year’s theme is “Somerville old and new.” The short films will be about Somerville or shot in Somerville (showcasing some wonderful neighborhood scenery!).
Films range from fiction, satirical news and cartoons to documentary films celebrating Somerville music, food, politics, history and more! The selection committee plans to screen several short films mixing new submitted footage with vintage clips. The screening will total around 90 minutes.
