The Gadabout Film Festival 2018 is coming to Marywood University on Wednesday, Dec 5, from 6-8 p.m., Swartz Center for Spiritual Life, Conference Room B. This event is FREE and open to the public.
The Gadabout Film Festival is an internationally-touring short film program with a unique style and energy. A Gadabout screening is an experience accessible to everyone, from film aficionados to film novices, with a selection of high-quality, well-paced films diverse in genre, medium, and content. The program will include documentaries, animations, narratives, and just plain fun films. You’ll leave inspired and curious, having laughed, pondered, and possibly teared up. The first hour will be the screening of 14 short films. During the second hour, the co-producers, Eric Ayotte and Charlie Jones, will open the floor to the audience for Q&A and discussion about the festival, short films, and animation shorts.
