BUELLER, BUELLER: Purchase a ride on the 47-foot ferris wheel from noon-8 p.m. Saturday or noon-6 p.m. Sunday.

Candler Park Fall Fest, one of ATL’s biggest fall festivals, is back for its 18th year with plenty to partake in. The event maintains a lively atmosphere all weekend long with live music — Saturday will feature multiple cover bands (ending with some Abba-inspired jams) while Sunday focuses on local talent (including Atlanta Legends of the Blues). Take a stroll through the artist’s market to support local art — maybe even get your portrait taken by tintype artist Michael Foster, who will be on site both days. Craving some exercise before joining in the festivities? Run the festival’s official 5K on Saturday, or join in the free outdoor yoga sesh on Sunday — then celebrate with a beer from Sweetwater Brewing Company. When the hunger hits, a variety of food trucks will be available for all your nomming needs. Kids even have their own special place, officially dubbed “kidlandia” and filled with plenty of fun for the whippersnappers. All proceeds from the festival go directly to the Candler Park Neighborhood Organization to benefit the community, so go forth and support a good cause — and have a little (or a lotta) fun while you’re at it.

Free. $5 for ferris wheel ride. 11 a.m. Sat.-Sun., Sept. 29-30. Candler Park, 1500 McLendon Ave. N.E. fallfest.candlerpark.org.

As the brainchild of guest curator Didi Dunphy, this year’s festival theme titled “Hidden in Plain Sight” allows independent filmmakers to explore motives of the Trump Administration that may be overlooked, but right under our noses. Dunphy’s prompt is inspired by Highlights magazine. We all remember Highlights — finding specific, important items on a page filled with a hodgepodge of bullshit. To Dunphy, developing the trolling skills necessary for the Highlights scavenger hunts is exactly the notions president Trump presents in his leadership. The evening will begin with an introduction by the curator and each film will last 1-5 minutes, with a Q&A session to follow. All else aside, come see an artistic take of what some filmmakers think is the smoke and mirrors of current political discourse.

Free. 8-10 p.m.  Fri., Aug. 17. Whitespace Gallery, 814 Edgewood Ave. N.E. 404-688-1892. filmfreeway.com/ShortShorts2018.     Joe Peragine GRAFFITI GOALS: ‘Ride ‘Em Toys’ will be one of several shorts featured at the festival.                                   2018 Short Shorts Festival returns  "

  string(2964) "In a directorial debut for writer Warren Pemberton, The Other Side features an Atlanta setting with several shots of the familiar skyline, a jog around Piedmont Park, some back streets you’ll swear you recognize, and My Sister’s Room, a landmark lesbian bar and grill here in the A.

In a macro sense, the the romantic comedy-drama’s message brings to light issues the LGBT community often face within their own families. On a deeper level, the film highlights the struggle any person might go through when learning to love and accept themselves for who they are instead of caving to familial pressures. It’s hard not to get on board with that kind of positive thinking, but the film suffers because of the predictability of the plot and the lack of grounding in characters and their relationships.

Boyfriend Allen (Brad James), and his other half, Gemma (Erica Hubbard), make a lovely but unconvincing couple, their relationship fast-tracked on screen and lacking chemistry. To be fair, it kind of made sense for their characters once Kiya (Altovise Lawrence), Gemma’s old college “friend” (wink, wink, nudge), comes for a visit with more than just friendship on her mind. Kiya’s visit causes Allen and Gemma to question their relationship, which raises the question of how valid it was in the first place. Lawrence’s performance was stellar, selling Kiya with passion and realism and seeming to have instant chemistry with actors across the set. For some actors in the film, the acting missed direction or fell flat, leaving earlier scenes feeling awkward, most of the actors performed with enough realism — for example, Gemma’s overly-religious sister, Diane (LaKeta Booker), never faltered in keeping her character believable — to keep the film on track as a whole so that the overarching message was not lost among some of the more awkward scenes.

Despite its focus on a prevalent and serious topic, The Other Side was hard to connect with at times — though the film managed to stay engaging with a top-notch supporting cast (including Miguel A. Núñez Jr. and Roger Guenveur Smith). Allen’s co-workers bring refreshing comedy to the film with lines that evoke laughter between some of the more serious scenes — although the two worlds (home and office) felt like they were from two different movies. Toward the finale, Hubbard and James’ performances pick up when they channel some passion and begin owning their roles.

While the writing and acting fall short in several places throughout the film, the acting and directing peak in a climactic scene near the end and the message Pemberton is seeking to share stands tall. The film debuted on STARZ Mon., Aug. 12 and is now available with STARZ OnDemand. ★★☆☆☆

★★★★★ This film will change your life | ★★★★☆ A truly great film | ★★★☆☆ A solid effort, worth a watch | ★★☆☆☆ No thanks | ★☆☆☆☆ Don't bother"

Film. Podcasts. They’re all a part of Atlanta culture, so it only makes sense to combine them. Comedian Doug Benson, along with surprise guests, will discuss movies (and exchange witty banter) with a live recording of “Doug Loves Movies” at Variety Playhouse. Guests are never announced beforehand, but there have been a wide variety since the podcast began in 2006 including Dan Harmon, Scott Aukerman, and Amy Poehler. Benson and his guests not only discuss film, but also participate in feature segments and games. Podcast lengths vary, but typically fall somewhere between 80-100 minutes. Recording starts at 4:20 p.m. — cough — so get there on time and be ready for some laughs.

$20. Sun., Aug. 12. Doors at 3:30 p.m. Show at 4:20 p.m. Variety Playhouse. 1099 Euclid Ave. www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1627872. 404-524-7354.
