The winning films will have their world debut at a premiere party October 8 celebrating the official grand opening of Park Place Apartments at Petworth Metro.

  • Anyone have any idea about how the Park Place Apartments are filling up?

  • THAT’s their roof deck??? That’s amazing. Puts the one we have at Sydney on the Avenue to shame.

  • This is a big corporate weird advert thing / just a big HUH . All this stuff to get attention and it’s like,hi , lower the rent please.

    I toured the apartments and they are ok, but the roof deck – the roof deck is beyond awesome. Maybe they’d let me put a tent up there.

  • I think I’ll shoot a short film at Columbia rd & 14th called “bang bang, don’t get shot walking to metro”.

  • workmen were on OUR roof last week, but all they did was fix all that big mechanical crap up there. there’s not even a place to sit down. hmph.
