Independent Lens Film Series Joins the Pop-Up Movement
Independent Lens, the documentary television series announced the launch of Indie Lens Pop-Up, a neighborhood screening series bringing people together for community-driven conversations around films from the award-winning PBS series.
Formerly known as Community Cinema, the long-running screening series has been renamed Indie Lens Pop-Up to strengthen the bond between the Independent Lens television series and local communities, and bring new energy and new audiences to the in-person events as well as online OVEE events and the broadcasts on PBS stations.
Indie Lens Pop-Up will have its Washington, DC launch event Saturday, October 17 (5-7 PM) at Busboys and Poets Brookland. Attendees will watch exclusive previews of the coming season’s films and enjoy [in the spirit of the pop-up foodie culture] *a new feature*: thematically paired foods from the Busboys and Poets menu. Upcoming menu items include wings and sliders for In Football We Trust; for The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution, Busboys and Poets 14th & V location will serve breakfast sandwiches, a nod to the Black Panther’s free breakfast program for school children.
The launch celebration theme, “Eat, Conversate, Love” is inspired by the first film in the new lineup, Autism In Love. Spread Love trombone band and DJ Ayescold are among the artists to be featured at this free event, rising stars in Washington’s booming independent music scene. The Indie Lens Pop-Up event is FREE, but reservations are recommended. Reserve on Eventbrite
