Something You Should Probably Attend : A Festival of Rare and Hard to See Films, Organized by Aaron Rose

Musician, Curator, co-editor of ANP quarterly and master curator, Aaron Rose has created yet another monster. Seems pretty epic judging by this massive list. Sadly, I will not be able to attend - but you should if you have the time and transportation!!!

This flyer will hang out in the column over there, to your right >>>, just so you don't forget. I will also add flyers for other events as well...and if you know about any other awesome creative melting pot type experiences/events, then you should most definitely send us a note and a jpeg.

best wishes for the new year,
