ReelAbilities Pittsburgh film festival returns Sept. 8-12 – LOCALPittsburgh

FOR THE filmmakers showcased in 2021 ReelAbilities Pittsburgh, that aphorism would be amended to never relinquishing the camera or final edit control.

Running Sept. 8-12 at Carnegie Museum of Art Theater, ReelAbilities Pittsburgh has been presented annually since 2013 by Film Pittsburgh. It features films that promote awareness and appreciation of the lives, stories and artistic expressions of individuals with disabilities.

The 2021 lineup includes showings of 12 eclectic films from Venezuela, Australia, Spain, Hong Kong and the U.S., supplemented by special discussion events with festival directors and actors Christina Abernethy, Sachi Cunningham, Nicholas Bruckman, Chandler Evans, Kaitlin Kerr, Kristin Rebstock, Afton Quast Saler and internationally renowned Pittsburgh street performer Bill Shannon, whose career as a skate punk and breakdancer is explored in Crutch.

Viewers will encounter the occasional well-known personage — George Lopez (At Last), Will Ferrell and William Jackson Harper (David), Latin percusssion star Ruper Vásquez (The Special) and U.S. Senators Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Vice-President Kamala Harris (Not Going Quietly).

But at its core, the ReelAbilities films provide a series of life stories told with an unsurpassed level of intimacy, intensity and introspection. The settings may be ordinary … a subway car (Distances), summer camp (Best Summer Ever), Sunday church (Who Fights for You?), golf course (Re-Inventing the Wheel), family dinner table (Groundhog Night) or high school prom (At Last) … but the people whose worlds we enter are undeniably extraordinary.

Film Pittsburgh’s executive director Kathryn Spitz Cohan concurs. “That’s what’s so unique about ReelAbilities Pittsburgh,” she says. “The films and events emphasize how similar people are despite whatever differences we think we have.”

Following the Sept. 11 screening of Best Summer Ever, the Richard Meritzer Award for outstanding leadership in advancing the letter and spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act will be presented to Dr. Josie Badger of Pittsburgh.

Bachelor in Paradise season premiere recap: amazing, exciting, scary | EW.com

Season 7 of ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ kicks off with guest host David Spade, a bunch of randy singles, and the most night-one make-out sessions in the show’s history.

Hello again, rose lovers! In most parts of our country, the vision of a pandemic-free summer never quite materialized. (Get vaccinated, FFS!) But at least there’s one part of the world where randy, attractive singles can throw caution, dignity, and common sense to the wind: Bachelor in Paradise, that little stretch of beach where tiny crabs run free and producers reserve the right to portray contestants in ways that “may be embarrassing, unfavorable, humiliating, and/or derogatory, and/or may portray him or her in a false light.”

‘Vote them out’: Willie Nelson headlines Texas protest rally

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Country music legend Willie Nelson led more than a thousand spectators in singing “vote them out” Saturday from the steps of the Texas Capitol during a rally wrapping up a four-day march in support of Democratic state legislators who bolted for Washington two weeks ago to block GOP-backed voting restrictions.

Families with lawn chairs spread out across the sprawling Capitol greens in Austin. Clergy, politicians, constituents and musicians all spoke out about the proposals to impose voter ID requirements, limit ballot drop boxes and mail voting, and strip local officials of their election authority.

The special session that the exodus by Texas Democrats halted is set to expire next week, but Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has pledged to schedule a new one as soon as the lawmakers return to the state.

“If you don’t like who’s in there, vote them out,” Nelson sang, inviting he crowd to join him in singing lyrics he’d previously written about taking a stand at the ballot box.

“I felt like I needed to be here. It is a history-making event that is so necessary right now,” said Brenda Hanson, 75, of Austin. “I am a descendant of slavery and I am not interested in moving back, I want to see this country go forward. I have lived well over three quarters of a century and I have never seen us go backwards like this before.”

Hanson said she is disabled but otherwise would have participated in the nearly 30-mile walk. Instead, she hoped to make a statement with her presence as she sat chanting in support on a bench under a tree.

The march began Wednesday and ended Saturday when participants walked up to the doors of the Texas Capitol building in a rally sponsored by activist group Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. It was led, in part, by Beto O’Rourke, the former Democratic congressman and presidential candidate who has not ruled out a run for Texas governor in 2022. Earlier this week, O’Rourke and marchers shut down the frontage road of Interstate 35 during the morning rush hour, funneled between restaurants and cut a path from Republican-controlled statehouse districts to Democratic ones.

Marchers compared what the GOP says are measures meant to protect against fraud and restore confidence in American elections to Jim Crow-style restrictions. There has been no evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 election.

“I ask you to think about every man and every woman who had the courage in their convictions and did what they needed to do in their own moment of truth in this country’s history,” O’Rourke told the crowd.

Pittsburgh-shot horror film Massacre Academy set for local premiere | Screen | Pittsburgh | Pittsburgh City Paper

Pittsburgh has a strong connection to horror films. From being featured in George A. Romero’s Living Dead movies to Silence of the Lambs, we love a good scare. It makes sense that many indie filmmakers in the city have gravitated toward the horror genre, and Massacre Academy makes one more to add to the list.

Massacre Academy will have its red carpet premiere on Sat., July 31 at the Lamp Theatre in Irwin, Pa. In an email, the film’s writer/director Mark Cantu describes it as an ’80s slasher comedy. Cantu, who produces films under his Pittsburgh-based independent film production Cineworx, says the film was shot locally during the pandemic. Besides using a local cast and crew, Massacre Academy also features horror heavyweights like Felissa Rose, noted for playing the lead character in the 1983 cult horror film Sleepaway Camp.

Massacre Academy follows Kris McNeil (played by Jess Uhler), one of few survivors of a brutal series of murders by a slasher known as Carnie (Dave Sheridan). The film is set in 1987, two years after the massacre when Carnie is presumed dead. The trailer features a soundbite that says Carnie “sank to the bottom of a lake and drowned” but, as happens in horror films, a new series of killings begins and all signs point to him.

Tickets for the premiere are still available but limited, so get them while they last.


Massacre Academy premiere. 7 p.m. Lamp Theatre. 222 Main St., Irwin. $30. lamptheatre.org

Pittsburgh is a ‘craft beer destination’ says American Craft Beer

 

A national website names Pittsburgh a craft beer destination.

Pittsburgh’s craft beer scene is booming and it’s not just locals who are taking notice.

Thirsty folks from American Craft Beer, a website dedicated to national brew news, recently paid a visit to our fair city to soak up the hoppy culture and its liquid assets. Not, surprisingly, they were impressed.

The Washington, D.C.-based bloggers had this to say:

“Pittsburgh turned out to be more interesting, more vibrant and more fun than we ever expected, and its beer scene, which is pretty amazing, was only part of the ride. Any great beer destination starts with a combination of things, the city, its people, character and vibe … and, of course, its beer. And as it turns out, Pittsburgh has all of those things in spades.”

Weeks After Manifest’s NBC Cancellation, It’s Still Hitting A Major Netflix Milestone – CINEMABLEND

Manifest is still flying around Netflix even after the cancellation.

Manifest entered its 23rd straight day as the #1 show on Netflix on July 5, according to Forbes, and it’s still holding that spot on July 8 and could become the most popular show on the streamer. The series is officially tied with Tiger King, which was also #1 for 27 days, meaning it just needs to beat out Ginny & Georgia, which Forbes reports was #1 for 29 days. Out of the five most-watched adult-targeted programs on Netflix, Manifest is the only non-Netflix show, which really says a lot. And makes many wonder why Netflix chose to pass on the series.

Shortly after NBC cancelled Manifest, many fans were hopeful that the show would find new life on Netflix, considering how well it was doing. There’s also the fact that Netflix promoted the first two seasons multiple times on their social media pages. However, just a week after NBC cancelled Manifest, news broke that Netflix passed on the series as well, which came to a surprise to many fans since it was, and still is, the #1 show on the platform.

‘Manifest’ Could Become Netflix’s Most Popular Show Ever

As the show continues to dominate the Top 10 charts, we must ask: Is Manifest the most popular series on Netflix…ever?

Something unprecedented is happening over on Netflix right now. Manifest is in the midst of a historic run on the Top 10 charts, as the program just completed its 23rd consecutive day in the #1 position—a feat only two other shows have accomplished: Ginny & Georgia and Tiger King.

And as the show inches closer and closer to claiming the best streak ever, we must ask: is Manifest the most popular series on Netflix…ever?

The world’s biggest streaming service has produced several shows over the past few years that were mega-hits—but it’s difficult to determine exactly which one was the most popular. The streaming service claims that Bridgerton had a record 82 million views in its first 28 days. But Bridgerton was only able to overtake The Witcher’s previous record of 76 million views because Netflix’s subscriber base had grown so exponentially during the coronavirus pandemic.

Then we have to consider the Top 10 charts. Last year, I formed a points-based system that allowed me to rank every show’s popularity based on their Top 10 placements each day (here are the 2021 rankings, in case you’re curious). And while this system doesn’t give us hard numbers, it does let us know which shows have been the most consistently popular on Netflix.

Pittsburgh beefing up security presence for Downtown celebrations this weekend | TribLIVE.com

With full-blown Fourth of July celebrations back for this year’s holiday weekend, Pittsburgh Public Safety officials are stepping up security for events Downtown and in Point State Park.

After the pandemic canceled celebrations in the city last year, Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich said as many as 200,000 people are expected to crowd into Downtown and Point State Park for fireworks and other activities on Saturday and Sunday.

“We expect this to be one of the busiest nights of the year with people eager to gather together after a challenging time,” Hissrich said. “But Public Safety’s primary focus will always be to protect residents and visitors so they can safely enjoy Independence Day with their families and friends.”

Hissrich said there will be more than a dozen mobile light towers at key locations to increase visibility Downtown. Also, Pittsburgh police, state police and Allegheny County Mounted Units will be activated to keep crowds moving and allow first responders to reach people in the event of an emergency.

As part of the effort to head off rowdiness, Point State Park Rangers will help Pittsburgh Police with bag screenings at the Park’s entrances.

 

The fireworks are scheduled to end at 10 p.m. on Sunday. Hissrich said police will be working with Port Authority personnel to move people out of the Downtown core as quickly as possible to reduce problems related to overcrowding in some areas at the end of the evening.
