Rosebud: Recognizing Local Talent for 20 Years

The Rosebud Film and Video Festival is THE DMV film festival, accepting entries exclusively from residents of D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. It's been around for 20 years now, making it a D.C. film institution. That kind of longevity is a rarity for film festivals, many of which vanish after just one year.

Rosebud forgoes the glitz of many of its counterparts focusing instead on substance. As it states on its website, “The Rosebud Festival seeks to honor the innovative, experimental, unusual, and deeply personal in creative film and video making.” And rather than a sack full of trendy schwag, filmmakers have the chance to go home with one of five $1,000 prizes. Speaking as a filmmaker, I'd much rather have the $1,000.

Briar Patch Donates Rooms for Veteran's Day

Reprinted with permission from Ashburn Patch -- Briar Patch Bed & Breakfast Inn in scenic Middleburg plans to offer free rooms to veterans as part of a nationwide promotion this week to honor those who have served our country.

B&Bs and inns across the country are providing free rooms on Wednesday, Nov. 10, in observance of Veterans Day on Nov. 11 to honor servicemen and women now serving or who have previously served time with one of the country's military forces.

Two B&B owners started the program in 2009. Both were members of the West Virginia B&B Association and this year the veteran program has expanded to include 49 states, 8 international locations and more than 850 Inns.

'Tis the Season for Giving

On Friday, Giant Food donated $10,000 to Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network (A-SPAN), a community based organization dedicated to help every homeless person in Arlington County get off the streets and live a better life.

Giant presented the check on Friday at Nottingham Elementary School in Arlington. During the remainder of the day, A-SPAN gave 5 presentations and “mini-walks” to help elementary school students learn about what the organization does and how the kids can help. A-SPAN’s efforts help support the Fannie Mae Help the Homeless Program, so these "mini-walks" were a smaller version of the Fannie Mae Walk for the Homeless, which will talk place on the National Mall on November 20.
