I Am What I Play will kick off quarterly screenings
The Beacon Independent Film Festival will launch a quarterly film series at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 13 at the Howland Cultural Center with a screening of I Am What I Play, which opened the festival on Sept. 18. The documentary focuses on four disc jockeys during the heyday of rock, when many DJs were given great freedom on the air and enjoyed celebrity status. Has this type of freeform radio died, or has it reinvented itself in unexpected spaces?
A donation of $10 is suggested at the door. Free popcorn and drinks will be available. The Howland Cultural Center is located at 477 Main Street. For further information, call 845-831-4988 or visit beaconindiefilmfest.org. Future dates for the film series are Feb. 12, May 13 and Aug. 12.
The festival also has posted films online that were accepted for the 2015 event but were not shown due to time constraints. Access is free, although the films will be removed after Nov. 30. Visit vimeo.com/channels/biff2015online.
