DRINKS AND DRAMA: WATCH FOR FREE AT DIAMOND SCREEN FESTIVAL

The 16th Annual Diamond Screen Festival is holding a FREE screening series this February and March, with a cash bar, complimentary hors d'oeuvres, and Specialty Cocktails. You know you've really made it as a film festival when you can boast having Specialty Cocktails. 

Going to these types of functions and festivals always ends up serving two purposes, one selfish and one not. Non-selfishly, you're supporting local arts and contributing to community programs and encourage young artists and filmmakers – at the end of the day, you're providing much needed contribution to city arts projects. Selfishly, you get to feel really smug about how you're supporting local arts and community projects. Plus, with a few drinks in you, I bet half of these films would only improve. Keep February 10th and March 12th in mind; film festivals make great dates.
