CGIFF screening

My short film, “The Neighbor Hood”, will be playing for free as part of the Columbia Gorge International Film Festival. “The Neighbor Hood” is about a middle-class couple that brings home a rough but charismatic stranger. Can this couple stay a couple with him around, or is their duplex condo lifestyle built out of straw? This film is my kiss-off to New York City. After 25 years of working as a film and television editor, I was moving to Portland, Oregon. I had one last chance to use my Brooklyn apartment as a location, so for my theme, I picked a hot Brooklyn topic: gentrification (a subject with great resonance here in my new home!). The cast : Diana – Sarah Dewey Jeff – Baltsar Beckeld Powlo – Matthew Cippaghila Mugger – Logan McCoy The crew: Anthony Orkin John Parlante Katrina Whalen “The Neighbor Hood” is distributed by Snag Films. “The Neighbor Hood” will play in the Washburn Auditorium, 1201 39th Street, Washougal, WA, on Saturday, August 15th at 8 PM. I’ll be at the screening, if people have any questions. www.anthonyorkin.com
