The Buffalo Infringement Festival is a summer tradition that finds new ways to grow, innovate and surprise each year. The schedule for the 11th annual festival is utterly epic, but for film fans, one night to keep an eye on is July 25.

The “First Friday Film Fiesta,” running from 7 to 9:30 p.m. July 25 in Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, features a number of movies, including “Bring Me Your Vultures” at 8:15 p.m.

“Vultures” is a documentary looking at the last days of Mohawk Place, the iconic concert venue which, we recently heard, will rise from the dead in a few weeks. That’s wonderful news, but as “Bring Me Your Vultures” should demonstrate, Mohawk Part II will have a lot to live up to.

More on the 11th annual Infringement Festival resides at the official website, while News Arts Critic Colin Dabkowski pinpointed some theater performances worth checking out.
