It’s almost time for the
Teen Video Contest
In just a couple of months, the Regent Theatre will once again screen the entries and host the ATown Awards Ceremony for this Showcase of youth filmmaking in Arlington. But of course it can’t happen without the films themselves, and that’s where YOU come in! Please help us get the word out about this opportunity to any young filmmakers you know, and encourage them to submit their work. The deadline for submissions is February 22, 2016. There is no submission fee for the first entry, so that is no obstacle. We look forward to seeing your talents on display!

to open the holiday season!
Scores of Arlington’s youngest residents showed up to hear Santa read “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” and they brought their parents along to join in the fun! A children’s chorus from the nearby Park Ave Congregational Church led the crowd through a series of beloved holiday chestnuts, cookies and hot cider were provided by host ACMi, and winners of a raffle sponsored by participating local businesses were selected. The event drew residents from all over Arlington (and beyond) to the Heights for an evening marked by high spirits and a palpable sense of community, leaving many with the feeling that a new holiday tradition had been born…
