Olympia Film Festival: Nov 6-14

Tonight is opening night of the Olympia Film Festival. Every year the festival offers shelter from the storm. This year it's starting less than a week after we had to move the clocks back from Daylight Savings time and just yesterday our winter rains started in full force. In fact there was a brief thunderstorm this morning, which is pretty rare.
DJ Shannon was under a tent, kicking out the soul jams to help us celebrate as the night began but the dancing in the street was mostly confined to the sidewalks, where people gathered under the covering of the marquee. There were some technically difficulties at the beginning of the show, but things got sorted out and Tom Schiller was on hand to present his full length feature film, the imaginative and beautifully shot, Nothing Lasts Forever (1984), along with some pretty funny short films starring some of the original cast members of Saturday Night Live.

Tomorrow morning at 10 AM they are showing The Muppet Movie!
