Saint Louis International Film Festival

Saint Louis International Film Festival

This weekend kicks off the beginning of the 17th annual Saint Louis International Film Festival, an amazing event which showcases shorts and independent films from all over the world, as well as amazing work done right here in our backyard.  I’m going with a friend to see Shadowland, a feature length horror movie shot in Saint Louis last summer.  I’ve heard mixed things, but this is a film that several of my friends worked on, so I’m going out to give it a chance.  Also something to keep an eye on is Streetballers another Stl-made feature, about street ball players going to school in Saint Louis.  

 

Personally, I’ll be watching out for the some of the shorts programs, which usually pack a lot of fun into a little time.

 

In addition to the festival mainstays, which will run through Sunday, Nov 23rd, SLIFF has a new component this year – IndieFest.  In a competition that went from Oct 27 – Nov 12, 15 films were put up online to view and vote for, with the winners to be shown on the final day of the festival.  Voting is over, but It’s not too late to attend the free screening at Webster University, November 23rd at 6pm.  

 

 

In other news, fellow blogger Patrick Vacek and I will be classing it up for Blogger’s Night at the Powell Hall, for their Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra’s Guitar Festival.  More info at their site, or you can watch this video here.
