The Central Mass Film Festival won’t be in full swing until September 12-15, but there are some other events coming up to keep an eye on.
In June, the Festival will be showcasing a few films in a preview capacity to drum up interest in the main event this fall. Work is currently being done to secure a Worcester venue for the weekend of June 1.
While September’s main event will look to feature films and filmmakers from all over the country, according to co-founder Dee Wells, the June event will attempt to focus on local New England-produced content.
In 2009, the towns of Sterling and Lancaster partnered for cable television. Things have been in constant forward motion since then.
Executive director of Sterling Lancaster Community Television (SLCTV), Chris Detsikas has spent the past three years building the company, as well as setting up a studio in each town. Now, he has advanced to the stage of bringing together the community in order to make SLCTV the best it can be.
The craft beer craze has been in full swing for some time now, especially in the New England area. The home brewing phase, however, is still in its infancy.
All around the country, small groups are popping up to promote this fantastic new hobby. Homebrewing clubs, like the Mid Mass Malt Mashers, have been banding together to promote the craft.
The Malt Mashers are based out of the West Boylston edition of the Homebrew Emporium store chain. According to co-creator and Emporium manager, Matt Amdur, these little clubs are growing in both size and frequency across the region.
