Best Bets for Thursday, Nov. 7

Looking for something to do today? Check out the Salem News' Best Bets:

Three Israeli filmmakers will screen their films and meet with students at 2 p.m. in Gordon College's Barrington Center for the Arts, 255 Grapevine Road, Wenham. Co-sponsored by the Boston Jewish Film Festival, the Consulate General of Israel to New England and the Gordon College Film Society, the college event is meant to foster intercultural and interreligious dialogue between young American Christians and Israeli Jews through the medium of film. The event is free and open to the public. The young filmmakers, Liran Kapel, Anna Gurevich and Assaf Machnes, are recent graduates of film schools in Israel and London and are in Boston to compete in Boston Jewish Film Festival's third annual Short Film Competition.

Teens are invited to Abbot Public Library to learn how to make their own stained glass candle holders. The event takes place from 3 to 5 p.m. in the library's meeting room at 235 Pleasant St., Marblehead. All materials will be provided. Call 781-631-1481 or visit www.abbotlibrary.org for more information.

Salem Sound Coastwatch is hosting an Adopt a Beach Training session from 6:30 to 8 p.m., for anyone interested in volunteering or learning more about beach ecology, sources of water pollution, how to identify storm damage, invasive species, and more. Adopt a Beach volunteers serve as year-round “beachkeepers,” cleaning up trash and litter, observing conditions on the beach, and looking for sources of contamination. The session will be held at the Marblehead Community Charter School, 17 Lime St., Marblehead. Light refreshments will be served. Reservations are requested at info@salemsound.org, or 978-741-7900. Visit www.salemsound.org for details.

With the cultural emphasis being on technological innovation, what is the role of the natural world for contemporary artists? Join Abigail Newbold, Andrea Evans, Caroline Bagenal and Montserrat College of Art faculty for a discussion on where nature exists within their artistic processes. The public event takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. at the college, 23 Essex St., Beverly. For more information, email savery.kelley@montserrat.edu, call 978-867-9624, or visit http://www.montserrat.edu/galleries/public-programs/.
