RIFE 2011 - DC/MD/VA Film Showcase

RIFE 2011 - DC/MD/VA Film Showcase

Today in my continuing preview of this weekend's REEL Independent Film Extravaganza, I'm going to stick close to home with the DMV (District, Maryland, and Virginia) showcase. Of the over thirty films in the festival, nearly half are produced by local filmmakers.

If you missed its AFI premiere, that I wrote about here on WUSA, you can check out Jason Baustin's Gone Forever (trailer). This 23 minute film tells the story of a young widower who struggles to find peace following the death of his wife. Gone Forever screens Saturday in the 4PM block.
