MORE UPDATES (03.08.06)--Wed Film Judging, Twin Rivers Concert, Peace Rally

SPRING WHISPERS, and Bonfires start to burn--slowly but surely. Updates in regards upcoming activities, programs and projects come flowing...
Meantime, tonight--each and everyone, including students, are invited to help us judge entries to the 12th TWIN RIVERS MEDIA & FILM FESTIVAL. Short features, animation, MTVs, and documentaries come from all over the US and other countries, including Belgium, Mexico, and Ireland. This is our way of enjoining the participation and involvement of the community in judging a supposedly reserved for thick-browed film critics and intellectuals film festival. Votes and comments of those who attend and participate will be annotated and accounted in the final judging. For more info, call Carlos Steward at 273 3332 or go to
