With our 2nd International Strasburg Film Festival only about a month away, we are announcing the 80 plus films that will be shown in scenic Strasburg, Virginia.
Our film festival benefits the Shenandoah County Public School District’s Theatre Programs. Today we’re highlighting a returning favorite, animator Radheya Jegatheva, who will be premiering his next animated feature, “The Quiet.”
The 10 minute short will be played during our Saturday 3:40 PM screening at Box Office Brewery. There is another film that will be playing with this, which we will announce at a later date.
When an astronaut ponders on the quietude of space, he comes upon a startling self-realisation. (If we mention anything else, we’ll spoil the plot)
