fest goes wild
Attractions" is the theme of the 13th annual Virginia Film
Festival, Oct. 26-29. The event will explore media representations
of animals as the reflections, antagonists, victims and superiors
of humankind, said festival director Richard Herskowitz.
Over 60 films, premieres, independent shorts and international
classics will be presented. Guest filmmakers, critics, actors
and scholars will examine the myriad ways movies have attempted
to tame "animal locomotion," from early motion photography
to the animatronics of "Babe" and beyond.
