This month, AFF is taking Underground to the E Street Cinema for a showing of The Singing Revolution, a film chronicling Estonia’s quest for freedom from Soviet rule using the power of song. Between 1987 and 1991, hundreds of thousands took to the streets to sing forbidden patriotic songs, forming a national unity that was key in the country’s independence.
The Singing Revolution will be coming to Washington, DC on April 18th, and AFF would like to cordially invite you to attend a screening with us! E Street Cinema does not typically release movie times until the week prior to the showing, but we’d like you to save the date and join us for drinks at Capital City Brewing Company at 1100 New York Ave starting at 6:30 that Friday evening.
Check the AFF Website or Washingtron Planner for a link to purchase your tickets, as well as updated showtimes!
Please join AFF for a film screening this Thursday, September 27th. The American Film Renaissance Festival, celebrating filmmakers who support individual freedom, presents a screening of Weirdsville at the Georgetown Loews theater at 7 p.m. on Thursday followed by an after-party at Blue Gin co-hosted by the Institute for Humane Studies. Weirdsville is the hilarious story of two slackers who must unlock a safe to get money to pay off a local drug kingpin, all while fending off a bizarre cult with the assistance of vengeful midgets. For tickets to the film screening, please e-mail Kristen Soltis at email@example.com to be put on the RSVP list. These tickets are $5 for AFF members and $10 for non-members, and include access to the film screening. For information on ticket upgrades for the Blue Gin afterparty, please contact Kristen for details. See you Thursday evening!

AFF Underground is attending a special DC Premier of the upcoming film, Mine Your Own Business. About the film:
ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂ¢?ÃÂ¬ÃÂ ?Mine Your Own Business, a film produced by New Bera Media in association with the Moving Picture Institute, looks at the dark side of environmentalism. It talks to some of the world’s poorest people about how western environmentalists are campaigning to keep them in poverty because they think their way of life is quaint. It is the first documentary to ask hard questions of the environmental movement.ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂ¢?ÃÂ¬ÃÂÃÂ
