D.C. Film Fest Now Playing at a Theater Near You
Ah, springtime in D.C. What a time for a film festival. Through April 17, come on out and help celebrate the Washington, DC International Film Festival’s 25th anniversary. This year, the festival will be focusing on films from Scandinavia and South Korea. The Opening Night Gala at Lincoln Theatre saw the Washington, D.C., premiere of “Potiche.” Directed by François Ozon and starring Catherine Deneuve and Gerard Depardieu, this French farce centers on Deneuve’s portrayal of Suzanne, a trophy wife who steps out of her role. Here is a complete listing of the festival’s films. I counted 74, so there’s sure to be something for even the most finicky moviegoer. The festival is spread out all over the Northwest quadrant. Participating locations – nine in all – include Landmark Theatres’ E Street Cinema, Avalon Theatre and the National Gallery of Art. As you can see, most of these are Metro accessible. Tickets for the Closing Night Film – Swedish flick “Sound of Noise” – and After Party will set you back $20. Regular shows are $11. The Washington, DC International Film Festival: just another benefit of renting in the District.
