The Arts Council of the Valley announces Art House 101, a new film festival celebrating the visual and performing arts. The event will take place Jan. 20-22, 2011 at Court Square Theater, 61 Graham St.
The three featured films are “Helvetica,” “Note By Note” and “Breath Made Visible,” to be shown at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. each evening in a rotating schedule.
Tickets are $6 per film or one can purchase an Art House 101 Pass to see all three movies for $15. Movie attendees are invited to enter a raffle for a free DVD copy of each of the three featured films as well as two pairs for tickets for performances at the Forbes Center for the Performing Arts, donated by James Madison University.
The purpose of Art House 101 is two-fold. First, this is a celebration of the arts in its diverse forms. ACV believes the arts are foundational to a vibrant community and want to encourage the public to consider the role of art in their lives. Second, this festival provides an opportunity to educate the community on the mission of CST.
CST is an intimate art house that celebrates the independent and foreign films as well as unique theater, music, and dance.
