LAVA Local Filmmaker Series: Althea Levin Rieff Keaton



The LAVA Center (324 Main St., Greenfield, MA 01301, Greenfield MA)

Join The LAVA Center for four evenings of local film screenings and discussions with the filmmakers! Leading up to the 3rd annual LAVA Film Festival (Sept. 22–23), we have invited Valley filmmakers to share and discuss their work. The LAVA Film Festival is open to all Massachusetts filmmakers, but this series is even more locally focused on Valley filmmakers! $5 suggested donation goes to support the filmmakers and LAVA.
