Clementine Vintage – Shorts Screening
Leading up to the 1st Annual Strasburg Film Festival which will be November 9 -11, we will be featuring some great independent films from around the world. This screening will feature a large collection of shorts ranging from 15 minutes to as little as a minute. We’d give this screening a rating of PG-13.
Clementine Vintage is a charming shop located in the heart of downtown Strasburg, VA. Located in a lovingly restored historical building the shop reflects the owner’s vision to repurpose and reuse quality furniture, vintage home decor items, and collectibles. A cozy shop filled with a mingling of merchandise including beautiful well loved antiques ready to be sent to a new home and a mixture of brand new home decor, gifts, and jewelry.
Clementine offers a unique space for small events and custom private workshops with a wide choice of projects for the home. At Clementine, their endeavor is to provide its customers with a relaxed and nostalgic shopping experience.
Free to attend.
We will have a spot at the viewing where you can donate to our 501 3 c which will help us fund films equipment to host more films outside. Once we are able to procure an outdoor screen and audio equipment, our funding focus will shift towards the Shenandoah County School District’s theatre programs.
