I went to Artomatic early on a Saturday morning because my film, Saving the Enchanted Forest, was scheduled to be shown for the second time at 11 a.m. I arrived early before the building had even opened its doors to the general public (I didn’t realize when I scheduled my film that the building doesn’t open on weekends until 11 so I unwittingly selected my film to be shown when the doors opened.) When I went inside I saw that one of the elevators were out of service.
Both women present said they enjoyed seeing my film, which was cool. Someone had configured the DVD player to begin playing again from the beginning once the film reached the end (so my film was on a loop) so I decided to just let it play while I check out the Holiday Market located in Area 1.
I stayed in the Holiday Market until it was time for me to leave Artomatic. (I was committed to helping out with promoting the recently reopened Greenbelt Theater at the annual Greenbelt Festival of Lights Craft Show in the early afternoon plus I also had two additional open houses scheduled for that day.) I went back up to the Film room around noon and saw that not only had the DVD player looped my film back to the beginning but some people were watching in the Film room. I decided to leave my disk there to play on a continuous loop until the next scheduled filmmaker pops it out of the player. I wasn’t able to retrieve it the following day because I had a few other things scheduled that day. I’ll probably return to the building sometime on Wednesday (when the building opens again since it’s closed on Mondays and Tuesdays) and retrieve the disk.
