My 52 Tuesdays allows participants to enter the story world of the World Dramatic Competition film 52 Tuesdays by inviting them to answer a question that permits them the space to tune in to their lives—every Tuesday. To participate, look for the photo booth at New Frontier and at screenings of 52 Tuesdays. Whether people choose to share or keep their answers private, in the end, they will be able to consider how they’ve chosen to live their own year’s worth of Tuesdays - S.F.
