Rain or shine ... Outdoor screenings go on and the skys clear up.

The time is 7:15 and we had monitored the weather all day ABC and NBC and the word was that we would need to move the outdoor venues (3 total) to City fitness.

We stood firm.

The show went on and by screening time of 9:00pm the sky's were clear and the sweet Delaware River breeze was blowing in. Glory at Sea (Ben Zeitlin), Streets Keep Calling Me (Lionel Cook), Fun for Hire (Nicholas Stone), Larry the Actor (Eric Poydar), LORA (Gabor Herendi), Digital Pamphlateer (Bill Simmon), Cutting th eRug, Turning the Wheel: Beats and Buddism in Northern India (Harrison Blum), were all crowd favorites.

Glory at Sea had some audience members (Liberty Land) in tears.

LORA was especially well received as the Film Maker was in from Sofia, Bulgaria.

Streets Keep Calling Me is an early favorite for local movies ...

more soon ...
