3rd Annual Cinema Somerville Outdoor Short Film Fest

The Somerville Arts Council and Somerville Media Center present an ArtsUnion and Cinema Somerville Short Film Fest on Saturday, May 19th from 8:00-9:30pm held indoors at SMC (it has been moved from outdoors to inside due to forecasted rain).
The 2018 Short Film Festival celebrates Community Voices!

These films are driven by powerful stories, captivating subjects, important themes and portray a distinct viewpoint on our world, by filmmakers with a confident voice. Some examples of COMMUNITY VOICES are “voices of creativity, voices of change, voices of protest, voices of struggle, voices of happiness, voices of empowerment, voices of hopes and dreams, giving voice to the voiceless, etc.”
We are happy to announce the accepted film submissions for CSFF3! Thank you for sharing your work with the community!✌️😎🎬📽️

Cinema Somerville is a project of Somerville Media Center. It builds community in Somerville through collaborations with community organizations and residents by curating and presenting free public film screenings at various locations in Somerville.
Now in its 13th year ArtsUnion has been instrumental in reinvigorating the artistic and business landscape of Union Square. ArtsUnion presents numerous events and markets, and leads cultural tours. In addition, ArtsUnion has commissioned temporary art installations, commissioned artisans to fabricate street furniture and has been instrumental in creating zoning incentives for arts-related development in the square. The Somerville Arts Council and the Mayor’s Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development created ArtsUnion, in partnership with numerous other local organizations through funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s John and Abigail Adams Program and the City of Somerville.
