In January, newportFILM will hold a Mini-Fest, which the group does every couple of months to create the spirit of a film festival. The mission is to bring educational and entertaining independent film programming to the community.
On Friday, Jan. 13, “The Island President,” a documentary film by Jon Shenk, will be shown. A reception will begin at the Casino Theater on Freebody Street in Newport at 6 p.m., with food provided by Salvation Café. The film will follow at 7 p.m., and a Q-and- A session will begin immediately after.
Cost is $20 for the reception and film, $12 for the film, or $5 for college students with an ID.
