The First Friday Alternative Film Series is for advocates of varying issues but also intended for “mainstream” folks who want to learn the less-publicized areas of current issues. Alternative films in 2015 were March’s, which explored the reasons for decriminalization of marijuana; April’s, the pollution of “fracking” for natural gas; and May’s, the publicity of exploiting and trivializing women and their bodies.
The Alternative Film Series will take July and August off. The fall series will aim for films which feature money in elections and environmentalism. Check www.getthewordoutict.org in August.
