A Story That’s Waited Eighteen Years To Be Told! Firebird: Built to Burn delves into a year in the making of the beloved Firebird Festival, where a tight-knit community gathers every December to ignite a giant wooden phoenix. Fueled by their rustbelt spirit, a diverse group of volunteers persevere through pandemic restrictions, local government negotiations, and months of arduous building to orchestrate a cathartic come-back festival after their absence in 2020. Told through intimate interviews and fly-on-the-wall verité, Firebird: Built to Burn is a wholesome look into an unconventional tradition. The premiere of ‘Firebird: Built to Burn’ is Wednesday, November 29th, at 7:00 PM. There will be a post-film discussion with the filmmakers after the screening. You can purchase tickets at The Colonial Theatre's website. A limited engagement will continue through December 14th.
