DC Filmdom is proud to be partnered with the folks at Reel Independent Film Extravaganza (RIFE), which begins its one-week run on Friday, October 10 at DC’s West End Cinema. The festival was established by local filmmakers as a platform for independent movie-making talent from around the world to converge with an eclectic offering of features, shorts and documentaries in an environment conducive to audience interaction.
For its fifth year, RIFE is highlighting works from the Washington, DC Metro area in what could be a bellwether of DC’s independent film movement. Look for our pre-event reviews of some of the films, including locally produced “6 Non Smokers” and “Suffering Cassandra”; these films are also nominees in the first annual Indie Capitol Awards, which will be presented on Sunday, October 12th from 1:00-4:00 PM at the gorgeously redesigned Angelika Mosaic Film Center in Fairfax, VA. This inaugural red carpet event will honor some of the most innovative and avant-garde up-and-comers on the indie scene in DC, Maryland and Virginia.
Film enthusiasts (and even less ardent moviegoers), we hope to see you there!
