The worst part about these two fun, entertaining events happening this weekend is… they are happening at the exact same time. You will have to pick…
Saturday night at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, you can watch original films and meet the filmmakers at the Clifton Film Festival. The festival offers “creative and thought provoking independent dramas, comedies, documentaries, or animations that will entertain the local community,” and is still actually accepting admissions. In addition to full-length films, the festival will also hold workshops for budding filmmakers and will screen short films of 5-30 seconds as well.
Saturday night at Artisphere in Arlington, you can watch and be a part of a theatrical and improvisational game show at the “You, Me, and Everybody Live Presents: This is a Game Show” performance. This event will be a “live game that combines all the best parts of every board game, televised game show, trivia night, quiz book, card game, and more.” The game-performance will involve the audiences, and offer prizes.
As mentioned, the only problem with these engaging, compelling, and cool events, is that you can’t go to both.
The Workhouse will host the film festival Saturday evening, with a day-time showing at 4 p.m. (which will be $5), and an evening showing at 7:30 p.m. (for $10).
The Artisphere will host the game show performance Saturday evening as well, beginning at 8 p.m. (for $10).
Which will you choose? Can’t lose. Well, you could lose if you didn’t go to either event. So, the only way you can lose is if you don’t play.
