Indies at Vinegar Hill, Featuring Familiar Strangers
Free & Open to the Public!
(Presentation is held at Unity of Charlottesville)

Are you a fan of independent film? Do you want to learn more about the increasingly popular “indie” film movement? Do you know that Independent Films have returned to Vinegar Hill Theater? Vinegar Hill Theater is now home to Light House Studio, a non-profit filmmaking center focusing on teaching and mentoring young people in all aspects of independent film production—with amazingly wonderful results! In addition, Vinegar Hill Theater now screens independent films on the third Thursday of each month, sponsored by Indie Film Minute and Light House Studio.
So, come to Unity of Charlottesville, learn more about independent film, and watch Familiar Strangers, produced by Barry Sisson and filmed in our own Staunton, Virginia!

Deanna Gould: As head of production for Cinesite Europe, Deanna successfully completed special effects work for films including Harry Potter I and II, Bond XX Die Another Day and Tomb Raider.

He refers to the production of the first film with which he was involved, The Station Agent, as his film school, from which he went on to produce two additional features, Charlie’s Party and Familiar Strangers (shot in Staunton Virginia).  More recently, Barry founded and continues to be centrally involved in the Indie Film Minute where he creates and manages all manner of activities: a syndicated radio feature, an active social media presence, and curated interactive film screenings, all in support of independent film.
