A symposium on the Alewife floodplain called “Collaboratively Framing Scenarios” takes place Saturday at Tufts University, bringing together the Alewife corridor communities of Cambridge, Somerville, Arlington, Belmont, Medford and Winchester.
The kickoff of the seventh annual Arlington International Film Festival is a showing of “The Promise,” a 2016 documentary of special interest to Cambridge’s Serbs. The festival itself draws more than 2,000 cinema fans annually to its more than 50 screenings.
Neighboring Arlington plays a role in the just-released biopic “Professor Marston & the Wonder Women” thanks to Cambridge’s Mike Bowes, a line producer who scouted the town originally for a documentary four or five years ago.
Neighbors opposed to an apartment project planned for the site of the Lanes & Games bowling alley and Gateway Inn motel have asked the Arlington Redevelopment Board to take a position on the proposal.
The Arlington International Film Festival has received more than 1,500 submissions from around the globe, and 15 jurors have been selected to choose the entries for the fifth annual event Oct. 15-22 at the Kendall Square Cinema.
The triangular parcel is north of Route 2, not far from the Alewife Reservation and a floodplain that has been the subject of years of protests during recent development in Cambridge and Belmont.
A 10th-grader from the Community Charter School of Cambridge has won the fifth annual Arlington International Film Festival poster contest.
A building permit has been issued for the Belmont Uplands, allowing construction to begin on a $70 million, 299-unit apartment complex amid the 15-acre wilderness area known as the Silver Maple Forest.
While Kendall Square Cinema is inheriting an international film festival in October, the event remains part of Arlington’s town tourism efforts and culture and will keep the town’s name as well as connections there.
Organizers of the Arlington International Film Festival have announced that the fifth annual event next October is moving to Kendall Square.
