Since its inception, Local Muscle Movers has been very supportive of the Portland art scene. In the summer of 2010, the owners of Local Muscle performed a street theater sketch about the trials and tribulations of moving and followed up their performance by turning their truck into a mobile art gallery at every First Friday Artwalk. Our newest endeavor is creating a film festival for local film makers to get their name out there and to help support the growth of Portland’s film scene.
The Local Love Muscle Film Festival will be playing at The Empire Dine and Dance, on Sunday, February 10th. Doors will open at 7:00pm,screening begins at 8:00pm, and there is no cover charge. The festival will consist of short films dealing with the ups and downs (and everything in between) of romance. The films are to be under 8 minutes in length and must be submitted by January 26th, 2013. The winners will receive cash and signed memorabilia. The crowd on the night of the festival will decide the winners by popular vote.
If you would like to submit a film or have any questions regarding the festival, OR if you are interested in showing your art work in our truck (parked in front of Reny’s) at the First Friday Art Walk, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
