SATURDAY NIGHT: Short Films + Awards + DiLoretto and DeSando Host!

Johnny DiLoretto & John DeSando of "Cinema Classics"

Join Columbus film critics Johnny DiLoretto and John DeSando Saturday, Nov 15, for the 56th annual Columbus International Film + Video Festival Awards Ceremony at CCAD’s Canzani Center. MAP

But first we think you should slip into something a little more animated!

Sit back and let these cutting edge animated films from around the world make mincemeat of your mind.

The program of short film starts at 7:30pm and includes the Grand Prix Oberhausen winner Chainsaw, a stunning story about Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner, chainsaw safety, and bullfighting.

Admission is FREE for students, all others just $5 at the door. Parking is FREE in CCAD lots and on the street.

Our Esteemed Hosts

Johnny DiLoretto is a Reporter on FOX 28 Good Day Columbus. We know Johnny (and photographer Rodney Middendorf) for scoping out the under-appreciated, well worn, and unabashedly local hotspots of Central Ohio. Their reports can be seen throughout the week on FOX 28.

John DeSando is Co-Host of WCBE’s It’s Movie Time along with Clay Lowe. DeSando is a former vice-chairman of The Film Council of Greater Columbus, the parent entity of the Columbus International Film + Video Festival, for whom we are eternally and cinematically grateful.

Our Co-Hosts are partners on the weekly radio program Cinema Classics. This show discusses great movies then and now, from films, genres, directors, and actors, to everything else in between. Cinema Classics is regularly broadcast at 8:01 pm Thursday and 2:01 pm Saturday on WCBE 90.5 FM.

Can’t Wait? OK…on-demand at the WCBE website here: Cinema Classics On Demand.

We’ll see you Saturday night!
