This Saturday, February 25th, The Film Independent Spirit Awards will hold it’s annual ceremony in Santa Monica. Among those nominated is Berkeley-native Mike Mills for his film 20th Century Women, a comedy-drama set in 1970s Santa Barbara about a trio of young women raising a son. Mike Mills served as director and screenwriter of the film, and earned the film a nomination for Best Screenplay, joining Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea, Little Men, and Hell or High Water. You can catch the awards telecast on IFC tomorrow at 5p ET/2p PT.
When We Rise, the ABC miniseries about LGBT history that filmed in the Castro last spring, is nearing its premiere—it’s set to run from February 27th-March 3rd.
But if you’d like to see When We Rise early, the Castro Theatre is hosting an exclusive screening this coming Monday, February 20th—complete with an anti-Trump rally break hosted by one of the series’ subjects, Cleve Jones. (ABC wants to make it clear, however, that Jones’ rally is a separate event, and not affiliated with their screening.)
The President’s Day event will showcase all four episodes of the eight-hour mini series event. A limited number of free tickets are available, and can be reserved online.
