The festival is only 1 week away!
There's still time to signup for a shift or two at the festival. We're having a Volunteer Signup at Deja Brew Coffehouse and Deli, 101 West Fourth Street, on SouthSide Bethlehem, 18015 on Thursday 6/8 from 6 to 7:30 PM. After the meeting we'll be showing clips and trailers from some of the "Best of the Fest" @ 7:30 until ? If you've already signed up, this is a chance to hang out and talk movies and get charged up. If you want to come just for the movies, arrive no later than 7:15 PM. Seating is limited. If you haven't signed up, well, what are you waiting for!
We still have only a very limited amount of promotional materials, including posters, trifold brochures, and a few counter cards to go wherever you can. Some areas that need to get the word might include Jim Thorpe, East Stroudsburg and Delaware Water Gap. Closer to home (festival home) would incl ude North Side Bethlehem, Easton, and Allentown, which would be "refreshing" sites that already are displaying, and seeking out new ones. If you have any other ideas, run them by me. Feel free to call my cell. Materials can be picked up at Deja Brew Monday through Friday 10 AM to 5 PM, Saturday 10 to 3.
The festival this year has the best programming to date. But it only happens with your help. Without our volunteers, we're left with a bunch of good ideas, and no way to make them happen.
Help make this the best year so far for the SouthSide Film Festival.
