Richmond is on the road to the White House....nearly literally, since the National Road leads to Baltimore, just north of Washington D.C.  Officials with the Economic Development Corporation of Wayne County hope to also make it an important political location for the 2008 election by applying to be a site for the Presidential or Vice-Presidential debates.  Read the following stories to learn more about the process and what it means to the community.

Phantoscope Film Festival Premier
This is your chance to possibly see the first film of the next Steven Spielberg!  See the best creative productions of Indiana/Ohio high school students who are competing for the top prize in the first annual Phantoscope Film Festival.  The public is invited to participate in the panel discussion with professional film makers at 6:00 p.m. and then watch the premier of the top films beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 24th in McGuire Hall at the Richmond Art Museum.

In case you're wondering...
A phantoscope was an early type of motion picture projector, invented by Richmond native C. Frances Jenkins.  The first motion picture screening EVER used a phantoscope, and was held in Richmond, Indiana, in 1894.

f.a.d.e. IN Film Series On Thursday, March 29th, enjoy The Triplets of Belleville (2003) on the big screen in McGuire Hall at the Richmond Art Museum, part of the Richmond Art Museum's  fade-IN Film Series (Focusing on Art, Diversity, and Education - Indiana.) Sure it's in French but with very little dialog, great animation, a touching/exciting story, and one of the best canine roles ever, you'll think you speak the language.  Don't miss Bruno the dog!
