For the second time in a week, two significant film festivals are kicking off. Perhaps the most significant is the Toronto International Film Festival, which opens tomorrow and will premiere a number of film on the radar for the upcoming award season.
More interestingly for the audience of this blog, the DC Shorts Film Festival also opens tomorrow! DC Shorts is entering ninth year and will premiere over 100 films from across the globe. Tickets to screenings are relatively inexpensive, hovering around $12 per screening, or $125 for a festival pass. If you’re in the DC area and a fan of world cinema, take advantage of such a large festival going on in the DC area.
Even if you’re not, DC Shorts also offers to stream the festival selections online through your computer or smartphone for a small fee. If you’re interested, there really isn’t much of an excuse at this point.
