“The LAVA Center is hosting its first Open Screen Film Festival this month, offering filmmakers from across Massachusetts a chance to share their work with a wider audience.
“The online festival, which began on Sunday, is scheduled to take place on Sundays through July 25. Once films have debuted on their respective dates, they will be available to viewers throughout the duration of the festival.
“‘There’s a real wide range — most are short films,’ said Vanessa Query, who is organizing the event. ‘They’re from all over Massachusetts. More in the valley, but we did have some folks from east and out west submit things. I think it’s a great, really diverse program.'”
