Any annual event lasting ten years in Salem deserves a big party and today marks the kickoff of the 10th Mid-Valley Video Festival, a celebration of the local filmmakers. Tonight at f-stop Fitzgerald’s, CHEAP FUN starts at 9 pm upstairs in the screening room. Friday night, local auteur Tom Murphy provides a 10-yr retrospective of his films at Northern Lights Theatre Pub and Saturday features new work from Scott Hartmann, Joe Sherlock and a compendium of vintage films from the original festival in 2004.
All shows start around 9 pm. Admission is $3 at Northern Lights, free at f-stop. All shows 21+ only.
