opening night party

OCTOBER 1, FRIDAY BEGINNING AT 9PM

Party like it’s 1995! Join us for our 15th Anniversary Bash and Local Sightings Opening Night Party. Come dressed like it’s the year of our founding, 1995, and dance the night away to tunes from that bygone era courtesy of DJ Crispo.

We’ll be serving a special homemade birthday cake, as well as treats from Healeo and Cupcake Royale.  And Sweet Iron Waffles will be on hand to provide you with delicious fresh cooked waffles from their mobile food stand (so bring your cash).

And if that’s not enough, there will be sumo wrestling!  Bring your favorite nemesis for one-on-one bouts hosted by MC Grant Cogswell.  Celebrity bouts TBA!

Special guests include conceptual artist and poet A K Mimi Allen:

THE HERMITAGE @ Northwest Film Forum
A K Mimi Allin

Join conceptual artist and itinerant poetess, A K Mimi Allin, after the screenings in Cinema 1 for a look at The Hermitage, a hand-built, mini-yurt made of hemlock and canvas. This cozy dwelling will serve as Allin’s shelter when she makes her own hermitage in 2011. Allin will, thereafter, year after year, until she’s 90, take one, month-long, solo hermitage on any fallow or wild land she can find in the US or abroad. The land, in most cases owned and offered by friends and supporters, puts The Hermitage somewhere between the known and the unknown, making it a common endeavor with artist and audience working to nourish the collective spirit. It recognizes the artist’s reliance on the public and prioritizes the needs of the artist, both spiritual and physical. Fallow land, fertile future. Allin’s first hermitage takes place in January in Southwestern Mexico. The following, in April, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada.

Inside this nomadic, little dwelling is a scriptorium with handmade poetry scrolls. The scrolls are penned with poems drawing from various wandering poetry traditions. Feel free to open and read them. And, if you happen to have fallow land (off the beaten trail and away from society), consider putting it up for a month-long hermitage. See details below.
