Film fest goes wild

"Animal 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.
