Arlington – Rosebud Film Festival – Jan. 27-29 – Fee

Join them for the 26th annual Rosebud Film Festival

          The festival kicks off Friday, January 27, 2017, at Rosslyn Spectrum Theatre with the opening night film, Reparation, which was written, directed, and produced by filmmaker Kyle Ham. The film stars Jon Huertas (Castle, This Is Us), Marc Menchaca (Inside Amy Schumer), and Virginia Newcomb (The Atoning). Mr. Ham will be on site for a Q&A after the film. Tickets for the event are $15 for the film, Q&A, and mixer afterward.

Their 2017 nominee film showcase will commence Saturday, January 28, 2017. The entire 20-film slate of nominees will be screened beginning at 1pm. An all-day pass for the showcase is only $15 and includes re-entry privileges throughout the day, as well as free admission to the Rosebud Awards Gala on Sunday, January 29, 2017.

You can purchase an all-access pass for all three days for just $25! Tickets are available at the door or in advance online.

A panel of judges, drawn from our area’s rich media arts community, selected the 20 nominees from which five winners—including one Best of Show—will be chosen. Festival winners will each receive $1,000 cash prize and will be announced at the Rosebud Awards Gala.

Rosebud is an annual competition open exclusively to DC, Maryland, and Virginia film and video producers. For 26 years, the Rosebud Festival has honored the innovative, experimental, unusual, and deeply personal in creative film and video making through Arlington Independent Media.

Show your support for their area’s independent film and video community while enjoying truly exceptional films at the Rosebud Film Festival!
