"Arsenal Festival Club" - the mere sound of these words make us dance involuntarily and turn off the alarm clock set for 8:30 a.m., because we know we won't be home until dawn. This year we can't come to the club, so the club will come to us!
This Friday at 9:00 p.m. come to a house party with New Horizons and the American Film Festival. There will be a lot of festival music and lots of other attractions. We will connect live via Zoom (free application download here). Note! Access is limited and granted on a first-come first-served basis [sign up here].
We also encourage you to submit video recordings (maximum 30 seconds) in which you invite others to listen to your song of choice. We will show the most creative recordings during the house party and, of course, we will play the song you choose. Send your recordings here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
