Amateur Filmmakers of Alaska

1:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Z.J. Loussac Public Library
Salmon Meeting Room
Have you always been interested in making films but couldn't get started because you didn't have money, experience, equipment, a crew, actors, money, props, location permits, make-up, money, or money? Us too! 

Hi, we're a group of local yokels with varying degrees of degrees. We all have one thing in common, we love to have FUN and we love to make MOVIES! We're looking for some other people around town who, in the words of Bryan Mills, have a very particular set of skills (we'll settle for enthusiasm in a pinch). 

Acting, writing, camera, sound and lighting tech, SPFX, production, animation, story boarding, wardrobe, editing, set design, props - you name it, we'll exploit it. 

We have a MeetUp™ group with the same name (Amateur Filmmakers of Alaska) and encourage you to join and come discuss the possibility of collaborating on some awesome and sometimes terrible short films that will earn you neither money nor the respect of your peers. 

Please come and join us as we trudge the happy road to creative silliness and sometimes seriousness.

The Listening Post in the Atrium

1:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Z.J. Loussac Public Library
At the Listening Post we believe listening with our full attention and compassion has powerful results.

There is a level of dignity we can offer as one human being to another: We can listen. Everyone's story is different. Some stories are difficult, some daring, some happy, some sad. But there is something we all have in common - Being Heard Matters. 

Everyone deserves to be listened to. That is what The Listening Post is here to do - honor you, offer you respect, and hear your story.
