Erin Doyle is
a young filmmaker living in Buffalo, and next Wednesday, she’ll release her
pilot-length film, Vlog,
at the Market Arcade Theatre on Wednesday, October 21 at 7PM.

film community here, and this was my first attempt to bring a bunch of talented
locals together to make a film by and for Buffalo!”
