September 14-16, 2012
DC Shorts Film Festival comes back to the Atlas.
This year, the festival will be showing 140 films from 27 countries. The films run the gamut in genre, style and subject, but are unified by their abbreviated run times of 1 – 20 minutes. These films will be grouped together into 16 unique, 90-minute showcases shown throughout the festival. The showcases range in content with something for everyone, including dramas, comedies, animation, sci-fi, documentaries and experimental films. Some films include well-known actors such as Christopher Lloyd, Kathy Bates, Jason Alexander, Judi Dench, Anna Paquin and Gerard Depardieu.
This year, DC Shorts will also be pairing chefs from across the DC region with food-themed films. Attendees at these screenings will enjoy a complimentary snack matched to the film and prepared by a local chef.
The final weekend’s events will be held at the Atlas September 14-16 with free family and teen films will be shown on September 15 at noon & 2 pm.
The closing party will be held September 15. Visit dcshorts.com for full schedule and screening times
