Actress Brenna Lee Roth, who will be featured in the newest installment of the Twilight movies, created the idea for the Cleveland Grindhouse Film Festival to benefit her environment-friendly non-profit Growing Our Future Today. The event will feature appearances by celebrities including actress Robyn Griggs and model Lisa Neeld. Featured at the festival will be films by local filmmakers as well as a musical performance by Kent indie rock band Night Owl Elixir. The party will continue after hours at the B-Side Liquor Lounge with drink specials, a meet and greet with Lisa Neeld, and a chance to win a role in an indie film (for all you aspiring actors). Also, keep a look out for Roth's upcoming documentary "Future Fuels" to learn more about becoming green. Time: 4 p.m. Cost: $10. Location: The Grog Shop. Information:
