Northwest Film Fest this weekend!

November 6th, 2008

This weekend is the Northwest Film Festival! I hope to have an entry in there next time around, but for now I will be happy to watch other local filmmakers’ offerings. As usual, I’m particularly excited about the shorts.. there are three rounds of them, each shown twice. I plan on hitting up “Great Speeches from a Dying World” with a buddy who invited me. The description goes:

“On a personal expedition, Linas Phillips (WALKING TO WERNER) befriends 12 homeless people in Seattle struggling with their unfortunate circumstances. Through the artifice of their reciting great speeches from history—from Shakespeare to JFK—we glimpse the nobility in their lives and a new context for the words and ideas themselves.”

Reviews to follow.
