Look, there is a reason we call it Bernalwood — and it’s not just because everyone who lives here is glamorous and fashion-obsessed. No, it’s also called Bernalwood in part because our neighborhood is home to its very own film festival, and our festival is a very locavore affair:
Organizers of Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema™ are planning the eighth season of free screenings showcasing local filmmakers — August 31-September 4, 2011. Plans include an Opening Night & Preview, an evening Block Party, the Film Crawl on Cortland, a screening Under the Stars at Precita Park, and a closing night in conjunction with Salsa Sunday at El Rio. As in the past, it’s a full schedule of film and video, live music, local filmmakers and film-lovers mixing around the Hill.
So attention all you gonnabe Coppolas, Kubricks, Kurosawas, Spielbergs and Tarantinos: The submission deadline for the 2011 Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema is June 1. Get on it.
