A free streaming. For the very first time, Rivertown Film is exhibiting a recording of our signature fundraising event, the widely acclaimed Inspired! We are making it available for FREE, thanks to the agreement of the participants, as a thank you to our community for supporting us for twenty years. Inspired! is about artists in Rockland County and what inspires them to create. There are as many answers to that question as there are people in the world, and they can be as different as anything that can be imagined. They can surprise you, and they will definitely inspire you.
On April 8, 2022, fourteen local artists in varied disciplines shared the sources of their inspiration, each using ten slides and twenty seconds per slide to explain them. Watching this quickly-paced night of introspection, thoughtfulness, and creativity is a unique way to get to know these interesting local artists and their art, be entertained, learn something about the artistic process, and meet our Rockland County neighbors. Registration is required, but the streaming is completely free. A donation to help cover the cost of streaming is appreciated but not required.
