Afterglow Film Festival this weekend

Staff Writer

In its fourth year, the brilliant minds of the arts, film and music come together for the Afterglow Film Festival in Downtown Grenada.

The festivities are set for Oct. 6, starting at 7 p.m. with a comedy show, and continuing Saturday, Oct. 7, at 10 a.m.

This year’s Afterglow will have a new look, taking place at buildings along Main Street and Line Street.

The Grenada Adult Education Center on Line Street, Rave Coffee House at 138 Main, and the Keeton Arts Center will serve as this year’s venue for the festival.

Sisters and organizers Isabella and Katrina Kinder said they are putting the finishing touches on the event marked with short films, music, workshops and food.

“We’re expecting a pretty big draw this year,” Katrina said. “A lot of hard work went into the festival, and we’re excited to see it finally here.”
Starting at seven o’clock Friday is a three act comedy show, which will take place at the Adult Education Center. The show will also include two short comedy films.

Saturday’s festivities will be filled with event for people of all ages.
