The International Film Festival is Happening Now
What's the only place you can watch over 70 indie films for a small fee? Well the answer is Washington D.C. at the International Film Festival, taking place April 7-17. At the festival, anyone can watch various movies from all over the world for $11 as a regular screening. This week-long event showcases films from France, Iraq, the US and other countries to mark their 25th anniversary.
The International Film Festival's opening night featured the premiere of Potiche, a stylish French farce, and closing night will show a Swedish comedy called Sound of Noise. This year's main geographic region series are Nordic Lights: The Old and the New which are new films from Scandinavia and New South Korean Cinema. This event takes place in 9 venues.
Ever since it was created in 1986, the festival's purpose is celebrating all international films, filmmakers, and displaying these movies for movie goers.
