Third Thursday Films at Minás - Joseph Young, Adam Robinson, Justin Sirois, Linda Franklin, and Luca Dipierro

Not sure about the title of the event, but you guys should come out! They are showing the MLKNG SCKLS short film.

MINAS in Hampden on the Ave - Thursday, November 18 / 7pm
Inkslingers and Flicksters is a night of short films by writerly types. Enjambment gets discussed while eggs get poached, collage meets audio, microfiction is recorded, book characters are cut-out and animated, a turtle writes a novel in the sand, writing meets seeing meets understanding, love lamentation is voiced over, self portraits become poetry images and much, much more!
