Blog #9 - Thirteenth Documentary Film Festival

Please join us for this popular film festival that is generously hosted annually by the Fairfax Theater. The Film Festival begins Friday, March 30 and ends on Sunday, April 1 at the Fairfax Theater. This year's films include:

After Happily Ever After is Emmy-winning filmmaker Kate Schermerhorn’s quirky, funny and moving personal quest for the secret to a happy marriage and for answers to some timely questions about an institution which might just be due for some review. This engaging doc features an eclectic mix of long married couples along with a lively and world-renowned group of marriage experts who piece together the history and possible future and motivations for marriage.

Way of Life follows the story of Michael Daube, a young man of modest means from small town America who finds a valuable piece of art in the garbage, sells it at auction and builds a hospital in one of the most remote areas of India. The film follows an organic path around the world, focusing on the aspects of Daube’s work that inspire us to consider and appreciate our own best intentions.

Interested in participating in the 48-hour, four-minute film challenge? The winning documentaries, and as many others as time permits, will be shown at a special screening during the Fairfax Documentary Film Festival on Sunday, April 1st. Winners for both Juried & Audience Favorite will be announced and prizes awarded at that screening. Read more:
