What?  Highlights of the 2-hour showcase include: the comedy “Super Powers” (from NY filmmakers Jeremy Kipp Walker and John Mitchell, winner of “Best Narrative Short Film” at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival). Two new international festival circuit honorees in the program include: 3–time “Best of Show” Winner, “Gone Fishing” from Chris Jones of Great Britain and a highly regarded short comedy from Belgium: “Tanghi Argentini” from director Guid Thys. The showcase is recommended for audiences over the age of 16.

And?  Radio personality Pat McAvoy will serve as Guest Host, introducing the films throughout the program. Mr. McAvoy is well known in the region for his popular Saturday morning music program, The Pat McAvoy Experiment, which he presents each week on Classic Rock 105.
