Rosebud Film Fest Kicks Off At Artisphere on Saturday

Arlington’s homegrown film fest, the Rosebud Film and Video Festival, is coming to Rosslyn on Saturday.

The annual event will get underway at 12:30 p.m. at Artisphere’s Dome Theater. The seven-hour long, 20 film showcase features documentaries, dramas, comedies, animations and projects that defy classification.

“The twenty works in this year’s showcase are as diverse and rich as our region itself,” festival organizers said in an email. “Rosebud honors the innovative, experimental, unusual, and deeply personal in creative film and video making.”

For $10, attendees can see all 20 films in Saturday’s nominee showcase. The price of admission also comes with an invite to Sunday’s awards gala, which will be held from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. at Clarendon Ballroom.

Check out some of the nominees at TBD’s Rosebud guide, and see the festival’s screening schedule after the jump.

A march against drugs drew a large crowd of parents and community members to Wakefield High School, where a student died this week.

The Arlington-Aachen High School exchange is returning this summer and currently accepting applicants.

The sister-city partnership started in 1993 by the Arlington Sister Cities Association, which seeks to promote Arlington’s international profile through a variety of exchanges in education, commerce, culture and the arts. The exchange, scheduled June 17th to July 4th, includes a two-week homestay in Aachen plus three days in Berlin. Knowledge of the German language is not required for the trip.

Former participants have this to say:

_”The Aachen exchange was an eye-opening experience where I was fully immersed in the life of a German student. I loved biking through the countryside to Belgium, having gelato and picnics in the town square, and hanging out with my German host student’s friends. My first time out of the country, the Aachen exchange taught me to keep an open mind, because you never know what could be a life changing experience.” – Kelly M._
