Action, drama, comedy, rom-com, fantasy, no matter the genre, I love movies. This weekend, I get to take my passion for cinema a step further at ReadingFilmFEST. For the third year in a row, the event invites locals and visitors to get a behind the scene look at the art of filmmaking. I attend movie screenings, workshops, panel discussions, and I get to chat with the very people who made the films participating in the festival. It ranks number one on my list of Top 5 Things To Do This Weekend in PA’s Americana Region. If films aren’t your thing, fear not, check out the other events on my list and be sure to enjoy yourself.
