In between exchanging various town updates, the Pamplin town council expressed their excitement over the upcoming premiere of “Hope’s City,” a documentary about Pamplin’s history and the community’s revitalization efforts.

The movie’s premiere in Pamplin will take place at the Pamplin Town Office. It’s set for 5 p.m. Saturday. Already, the film has received positive recognition, being an official selection in the Lift-Off Global Network First-Time Filmmaker Sessions of 2019 in Los Angeles.

Sarah Hamlett, the town’s vice-mayor, said the premiere is going all out “like a red carpet event.” A photographer will be present along with photo ops in front of a banner. There was talk of champagne being part of the movie premiere celebrations. Runtime for the film is about 36 minutes — which will begin after a “cocktail hour.”
