Here is the third and final set of photo highlights from the March 19th PEM PM Event Artopia held at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I did taking them.
This past Thursday night (3/19/15), the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts held its monthly PEM PM Event. This month it was time for Artopia, which highlighted creativity throughout the North Shore area of Massachusetts. Music was provided by the Ross Livermore Band. It was the first PEM PM event that I have attended since December. It’s amazing what a little snow here and there will do to keep one away from events such as these.At this time, I am not sure if it will be the latest or my last PEM PM event I will cover. As it is said from time to time, watch this space in the near future for details. Until then, enjoy the pics!
Earlier this evening, local musicians Dave Simmons and David Gerard took the stage at CinemaSalem for a quick set of tunes prior to the screening of the documentary My Brother’s Vows at the Salem Film Festival. The following are highlights from their set.
The festival continues today through Thursday, March 12th.
The following photos are from three events that took place at the Salem Film Festival on Sunday, March 8, 2015. The first is a Q&A Session for the film Cairo Drive with the film’s director, Sherief Elkatsha. The second group of photos are from the Q&A for Sex and Broadcasting with director Tim K. Smith. The third and final group of photos are from the Filmmaker Forum The Obligations and Limitations of Engagement presented by The Alliance of Women Film Journalists, which was held at the Peabody Essex Museum.
The 2015 Salem Film Festival is in full swing this week. If you live in the area and are looking for quality films to check out, look no further than this festival. 38 Films by filmmakers from 10 different countries will be presenting their work. There are also panel discussions and post-screening Q&A with the filmmakers as well as musical performances and other events to attend not only at the Cinema, but also places such as the Peabody Essex Museum.
The following photos are from two events I covered on Friday, March 6th. The first was a Q&A session with the director of the documentary Davids and Goliath, Leon Lee. The second was a pre-screening performance by Andrew Harney prior to the premiere of the documentary “Morphine: Journey of Dreams”.
The festival runs through the 12th of March. I will be covering a few additional events on Sunday and Monday of this week and will be posting highlights on the blog.
