Jeremy M. Brownlowe: An Evening of Poetry & Performance

Jeremy M. Brownlowe travels the country under the moniker “Typewriter Troubadour,” composing original pieces of poetry on a manual typewriter for curious pedestrians. This event marks the release of his debut, Angels of the Underground, a collection of rich, raw, and tender poems from an explorer navigating new frontiers of gender identity, sexuality, and human relationship.

Set in New York City, Angels offers Brownlowe’s unique perspective as a trans guy through unflinching portraits of male vulnerability, queerness, addiction, lost love, and modern alienation. With humor, grit, and ease, Brownlowe weaves stories of the neglected subjects of the City, taking notes in poems, which he offers up to us in this compelling collection.

This event will also feature readings by local Philadelphia poets:
Author Cashmere

DINNERMOVIE4 Premiere

#DINNERMOVIE4” is the next short film in the anthology series known as the DINNERVERSE from local creative Aleksandra Svetlichnaya. “#DINNERMOVIE4” was shot locally in the Philadelphia area, with local cast and crew. The series also includes “DINNER” and “BREAKFAST” (aka #DINNERMOVIE2). Aleksandra wrote, produced and directed all three, while also starring in them.

“DINNER” and “BREAKFAST” have been screened at film festivals and comic cons all over the country – including San Diego Comic Con 2017! Don’t miss your chance to see this next film before anyone else! (Official title will also be revealed at the screening!) Members of the cast and crew will be in attendance.

What could possibly go wrong with a planned camping trip? Well, as any horror fan would know, quite a bit. Dylan (Aleksandra Svetlichnaya) discovers this the hard way when Oscar (Joshua Kachnycz) and Steven’s (Nathan Landis Funk) trip goes awry, complete with a mysterious artifact and a powerful demonic force. And worst of all – no s’mores!
