2023 Programming

Selections, followed by the complete 2023 schedule.

On February 8, Rivertown Film presented Lowndes County and the Road to Plack Power, followed by a discussion moderated by Congressman Mondaire Jones, with Anya Rous, Vice President of Multitude Films (producers); Perry Grossman, Director of the Voting Rights Project at the New York Civil Liberties Union; and Willie Trotman, President of the Spring Valley (Rockland County) Branch of the NAACP. The Director, Sam Pollard, welcomed the audience via video.

The audience at Lowndes County and the Road to Black Power was given a discount code to see Personal Problems (1980), which was streamed from February 17 through 22, on the virtual theater. A discussion on zoom with two actors who appeared in it, Sam Waymon (partner of the Director, Bill Gunn) and Marshall Johnson, was moderated by Nyack NAACP secretary Bill Batson. Sam Waymon, Marshall Johnson and Bill Gunn were local residents. Unfortunately, Sam Waymon had sound problems, and Marshall was unable to connect until about half way through. Because of the quality it has not been promoted, but it is public and contains fascinating comments about a neglected filmmaker (Gunn), the writer/producer Ishmael Reed, and this experimental Black soap opera. View it on vimeo, here.


On March 15, Rivertown Film presented The Seasons: Four Love Stories, by local filmmaker Paul Schwartz, followed by a discussion between the filmmaker and Peabody winning WQXR radio host Elliott Forrest. Over the following week, Rivertown Film streamed New York Stories, which Schwartz made during the Covid lockdown (shot on zoom), about the entertwined lives of four New Yorkers who were dealing with the lockdown and Black Lives Matter protests. Those who attended The Seasons were given access to New York Stories for free.

On June 28, Rivertown Film screened Jimmy in Saigon, discussed afterward with the Director, Peter McDowell, and the film’s composer (and Peter’s brother), John McDowell (who is also the founder of a local organization, Rockland Farm Alliance). The story is about a third brother, who died mysteriously in Saigon. The Community Partner for this screening was the Pride Center of Rockland County.

Director Daniel Wolff and Editor Marta Renzi discussed their new film
Guardians of the Flame on December 13. The film had been started by
Jonathan Demme and was finished years after his death by his long-time associate
Daniel Wolff. It was one of numerous projects they worked on together
about post-Katrina New Orleans.

O jogo móvel tem vindo a crescer há vários anos. Naturalmente, os melhores casinos online também reagem à tendência e fornecem-lhe várias aplicações ou websites móveis. Nesta página, dedicamo-nos especificamente às últimas e mais populares opções de jogos móveis que são oferecidas no mundo dos casinos em linha. No teste encontrará toda a informação sobre aplicações para dispositivos Android e iOS, assim como websites móveis.
Cada casino móvel Português tem a sua própria forma de "fornecer" aos jogadores slots móveis e clássicos. Alguns dependem de aplicações especiais para smartphones Android, bem como para iPhones ou mesmo iPads. Geralmente, os pequenos programas funcionam nos telemóveis correspondentes, mas também é maravilhoso jogar em movimento com um tablet.
Outras empresas, contudo, juram pelos sites da HMTL5. Este é, por assim dizer, o casino original com quase todo o portfólio em forma comprimida. Ambas as variantes têm vantagens, pelo que no final terá de decidir por si próprio qual a solução que melhor se adapta a si e às suas necessidades. HTML5 é sempre adequado se utilizar um smartphone ou tablet com sistemas que não os mencionados - Windows, por exemplo. Para este software, muito poucos casinos online desenvolveram até agora aplicações especiais. Assim, a coisa mais fácil a fazer é chamar o URL do casino e depois beneficiar da oferta de jogos móveis directamente no browser.
Em princípio, isto deve funcionar sempre sem problemas nos dispositivos actuais. O desempenho na área dos jogos móveis está a melhorar visivelmente, de modo que esta opção de jogo dificilmente é inferior à do casino com navegador no PC de casa. É claro que não se pode jogar apenas gratuitamente em movimento. Os sites HTML5 são, no final, algo como a forma pequena do grande casino. Isto significa que iniciar sessão e jogar para obter ganhos reais é tão fácil na estrada como em casa, no ambiente de trabalho. A única diferença é, evidentemente, a resolução mais pequena, e é aqui que o trigo é separado do joio.
