Get your popcorn ready. Five documentary shorts have been selected to be screened as a part of the inaugural Bethesda Film Fest, organized by the Bethesda Arts & Entertainment District.
The five films were chosen from submissions by filmmakers across the Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC region. The selection panel included Angelica Das, associate director of the Center for Social Media at American University’s School of Communication; Imagination Stage director of digital media David Stern, and members of the Bethesda Arts & Entertainment District Board of Directors.
The films, between five and 20 minutes, will debut at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 23, at Imagination Stage. The selections are:
- Baffle their Minds with Bullsh*t, Kerry Leigh
- Into the Lime Lite
- The Plan
- The Rights of Butterflies
The filmmakers will be on hand to discuss their work at the Film Fest. Tickets are available online for $10 at the Bethesda Urban Partnership’s website, and remaining tickets will be sold at the door.
