March 7-10, 2013


With a record number of entries for consideration this year, organizers have selected a broad range of nearly 100 selections that include Hollywood heavy hitters as well as newcomers, dynamic young filmmakers and outstanding local talent.   The films focus on a wide variety of topics – Relationships, Mature Themes, Animation & Experimental, Mothers & Fathers, and Youth Created – and include thought-provoking content to engage the audience through conversations with the over 30 directors in attendance. Each year, the festival honors a female pioneer in the filmmaking industry.  This year, Penelope Spheeris is the guest of honor.  Her films DUDES, SUBURBIA and DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION III will be featured on Saturday, March 9th.
