I may go check this out tomorrow night... if anyone else is interested, let me know! If Freespace endures for the long term (I heard their original tenancy was up at the end of last month, but they seem to still be there) it could be a potential spot to host SF Liberty Coalition events or other libertarian doings. It's a fun place worth checking out -- spaces like this and Noisebridge represent kind of the bohemian take on entrepreneurship, so it's fitting they're hosting a film about an entrepreneur.

Friday, July 19, 2013 Freespace Pop-Up Community Center Impresa! is a film about a young woman in San Francisco contemplating starting a business: her own art gallery. She is a first generation Eritrean American, and the perils of her nontraditional business venture worry the family.
Our protagonist goes on a day trip in the Bay Area visiting the most creative Eritrean and Ethiopian owned businesses to prove that innovation has a place in the community. The short film is a light, uplifting look into the fictitious story of one girl abandoning cultural fiscal fears and chasing entrepreneurship.
Freespace is now a two month-long pop-up community center focused on hacking the civic experience. It is hosted in a 14,000 sqft warehouse in SOMA, San Francisco, envisioned and implemented entirely by you.
Are you concerned that we're losing our civil liberties and that the authorities are not respecting people's basic human rights? Are you sick of high taxes and fees and out-of-control government spending?
The Libertarian Party, the third largest political party in the United States, is based on a live-and-let-live approach to public policy that combines the tolerant social values of the left and the fiscally responsible values of the right.
We believe that you should be able to do what you want with your own time, money, body and property, so long as you do not initiate force or fraud against others.
This Meetup is here to help you meet other Libertarians and freedom lovers in the San Francisco area and provide opportunities to work together to help make San Francisco -- and the world -- a freer place!
Thank you for checking us out, and we look forward to meeting you!
