Did I really just see that?: Lively screening at the Pawtucket Film Festival

A great time was had by all at the Pawtucket Film Festival!
Thanks to Rick ‘Biskit’ Roth, Anthony Ambrosino, Leigh Christensen, Nick and everyone who helps to run the festival. Great set by Marc Pinansky! Thanks to Tiny the Terrible, Greyson Welch, David Grophear, and all of the crew, who made the film possible!
The PFF had this to say on their Facebook page:

“We [The Pawtucket Film Festival] had a very lively Q and A, but not quite as lively as Tiny the Terrible. We showed A Man Among Giants a film that leaves the viewer thinking every few minutes, did I really just see that? Did I really just hear that? Dougie [Tiny] did not win the office of Mayor of Pawtucket, but he clearly did not allow that disappointment to keep him quiet. He had so many zingers it is difficult to remember any of them. I can’t remember in our 14 year history the filmmakers [Tiny] picking on quiet audience members and putting them on the spot, including him [Tiny] asking my friend Kimberly Disco-theque ‘Hey what do you think, your face looks like you want to put me in a bag and kick me.‘”

There was something for everyone last night at The Pawtucket Film Festival . Andrea Gillis and Marc Wolfson Pinansky sounded great in that room, Marc writes great songs and did a beautiful version of Wichita Lineman. Wax Idiotical Films showed their winning 48 Hour Film Festival entry. Its a very funny and poignant film, a sort of modern Courtship of Myles Standish story called “Love in the Time of Texting.” Guy Benoit showed a beautiful film poetically documenting craftsman Otto D’Ambrosio building a guitar.

We do it all again tonight starting at 6PM Zach Slik will thrill you with some of his pickin’ and singin’ and Chip Hourihan no doubt will present a somewhat more thoughtful program of films. Hey and as always Sam Adams beer and Iggy’s bread.
