Local Love Muscle Valentine’s Day Film Festival
Though it’s still December, Valentine’s day will be upon us before we know it and it’s never too soon to start making plans! Local Muscle, Portland’s premier local moving company is organizing and sponsoring a local film festival to be held February 10th at The Empire Dine and Dance: It’s The Local Love Muscle Valentine’s Film Festival! In honor of Valentine’s Day we invite everyone to come on down to The Empire on February 10th, 2013 to watch and vote on a collection of local films. The films will screen at 8pm and run for approximately an hour and a half. Admission is free. Winners of the film festival will be decided by the audience; first place wins $300, second gets $200, and third is $100. There will also be special prizes besides the money for the winners.
The film festival is sponsored by Local Muscle Movers, a two and a half year old moving company that specializes in local moves. It was started by a group of creative, but underemployed friends in the spring of 2010 and continues to grow each year. Local Muscle has succeeded due to their strong focus on integrity and customer satisfaction. The company has also been a supporter of the arts scene in Portland since it’s inception. In fact, they kicked off their operations by performing a series of sketch comedies about moving in Congress Square park during a first Friday art walk. Since then they have provided their truck as a “mobile” art gallery for artists during First Friday Art Walks. They have also produced a couple short films themselves which can be seen here or by typing in “Local Muscle Movers Portland Maine’ on YouTube.
We hope to see you at the film festival!
