Your Weekend To Do List: 9/7-9/9

The same folks who present the popular winter beer festival at Duke Energy Convention Center bring the booze outdoors this weekend for Cincy Beerfest at Fountain Square. Celebrate the city’s rich brewing history in the best way — by sampling beer! More than 150 craft brews will be on tap for the fest, running 5-11 p.m. Friday and  3-11 p.m. Saturday. Buy $30 pre-sale tickets here and get automatic VIP status (which includes 24 additional exclusive beers, a souvenir mug and other perks). Walk-up admission is $45. The Cincinnati Film Festival kicked off last night, bringing a bevy of movies to Clifton, Over-the-Rhine and Downtown Cincinnati. Find your new favorite documentary, peep locally produced features, meet up-and-coming directors and attend the world premiere of a James Franco/Winona Ryder thriller, all at various venues across town. Check out our interview with CFF Executive Director Katharine Steele and get tickets and schedule info here. This weekend is Northside Second Saturday. Be sure to check out the grand opening of WordPlay, Michael Hurst’s art show That’s Just a Myth at Fabricate, Dylan Speeg’s paintings at NVISION and the newly-opened Tacocracy in addition to all the extended hours and specials at Northside bars, restaurants, galleries and shops. Whether you’re a fat-bottomed girl or more of a “Killer Queen,” most would agree Freddie Mercury is one of the most amazing entertainers of all time. Celebrate the Queen frontman’s birthday (he would have been 66 Sept. 5) at the fifth annual Freddie Mercury Birthday Bash. The Drinkery will play Queen tunes all night, 10 p.m.-2 a.m., so glitter yourself up and show off that chest hair. Skip your weekend takeout routine and visit the Hindu Temple of Greater Cincinnati for the Taste of India. Watch traditional Indian dancers, shop for art work, jewelry and spices and, of course, sample the best Indian cuisine the city has to offer. The evening ends with a fireworks display by Rozzi. The free fest runs noon-8 p.m. Saturday.Support a local environmental education nonprofit while enjoying lots of Bluegrass at Imago’s 12th Annual Music in the Woods fundraiser Saturday. Visit Imago’s 16-acre nature preserve for live music, vendors, food and drinks, a silent auction, family hikes, art projects and much more. Music begins at 4 p.m. and runs ‘til 11. Tickets are $12-$20.Shakespeare in the Park is a popular event in most major cities, bringing live theater out in the fresh air, much like when the original shows were first produced. If you haven’t caught any of these free shows, Sunday’s performance of The Tempest at Washington Park is a must-see. ArtsWave presents this special interactive production where the audience will help make the show happen. Participants will create special illusions, noise effects, lighting and more while enjoying Shakespeare’s comedy of magic and monsters. It’s fun for all ages, and a great way to get kids interested in theater. The show begins at 7 p.m., but come early for arts and crafts and face painting.For more to do this weekend and beyond, check out our full To Do recommendations and 41 other suggestions in our Cool Issue.

Now in its third year, the Cincinnati Film Festival is committed to helping filmmakers project their visions, as more than 80 works of various lengths and styles will grace venues in Clifton, Downtown and Over-the-Rhine Sept. 6-14.  

(500) Days of Web-Sling

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 4, 2012
Let’s get something straight about The Amazing Spider-Man, the franchise reboot from director Marc Webb of (500) Days of Summer fame. Comics, especially the new millennial generation editions, have no problems with reimagining and reconfiguring the continuity of these mythic characters.   

The Eternal Absurdity of Woody Allen

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 4, 2012
The next stop, To Rome With Love, finds Woody Allen cruising through the Eternal City in a madcap fantasy of misdirection, misinterpretation and almost-missed opportunities for a collection of characters whose lives and misadventures don’t intersect.  

Lola and the City: What's a Girl To Do?

Lola Versus starts with such promise: Lola (Greta Gerwig), on the beach, engaging in morning yoga while through voiceover informing us about life and the changes on the horizon. In particular, she alerts us to the fact that she (like most of us) is not good with change.  

'Where Do We Go Now?' Seeks to Resolve an Eternal Conflict

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 6, 2012
In a remote Lebanese village (hard to believe that such out-of-the-way places actually exist), Christians and Muslims live together, side by side, working and entertaining themselves as a community that is as close as family. Boys being boys joke and cross lines that are familiar to both sides, the men drink and eye women — although there is a sense of respect and honor truly from another time.   

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

Saga says goodbye by reaching adulthood

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 13, 2011
If you’ve followed the cinematic adventures of Harry Potter over the last decade — whether in print or cinematic form — it’s hard to imagine how Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 could fail. A series that began as an investment in J.K. Rowling’s remarkable hero-quest narrative evolved, over the course of seven films, into something else: an investment in the coming-of-age of three young actors.  

Making Connections

FilmDayton is a family reunion for area filmmakers and audiences

0 Comments · Wednesday, May 18, 2011
From Dayton/For Dayton is the theme for this year’s FilmDayton Festival, but you could just as easily think of it as FilmDayton’s family reunion because the focus of this event is the film community, the film family born and raised in the region.
