The show must go on –even in the wake of destruction! Even without a theater!
By Tom Semioli, Bader TV News
Legendary actor BURT YOUNG (Port Washington), along with local rockers JOAN JETT (Long Beach) and DEE SNIDER (Baldwin) who walked the red carpet in black leather – celebrated the return of the LONG BEACH INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL, which made its triumphant return despite the temporary loss of its premiere movie theater due to Hurricane Sandy.
With a massive screen set up on the beach and under the stars, actors, producers, and movie buffs got sand between their toes as the festival presented “Shorts on the Beach:” a series of fiction, documentary, and other short films produced by fresh new filmmakers!

The city has sent out the August edition of Community Update. Three items stand out for me:
First of all, Council President Torres, I’m not used to that yet! We were just getting used to Fran as president. The Community Update has a great photo of President Len, with everybody clapping behind him (see photo to the right). It looks like he giving the State of the Union address; very presidential.
Second item: The Long Beach International Film Festival (LBIFF). What is THAT all about? I am intrigued. You can find more info @ longbeachfilm.com. How did they ever get that domain name? I am so surprised somebody in Long Beach, CA didn’t snatch that one up.
This film festival doesn’t come until summer 2013, but I am excited!
Third item: Energy-Efficient lighting Supported By State Grant.
Our city is doing all it can to convince us how great these new lights are. Reason being: These lights aren’t popular. Sure, they were purchased with grant money and will save us a ton of money in electricity, but the complaints range from safety to “I just don’t like their color spectrum.” You can read more about these lights here: City Upgrades to Energy-Efficient Lighting Costs Covered by Community Development Grant.
