Sharpcuts film festival returns for third year

The Sharpcuts independent film and music festival is returning for its third year.

This year’s Sharpcuts will take place over three days, Nov. 13 to 15. Admittance to all screenings is free. The first addition is a film competition for Guelph high schools.

The second is Sunday’s clos­ing event, The SC Lounge. It will offer an interactive ex­peri­ence between musician and audience with Hamilton’s Ascot Royals the featured performers. They will be per­forming songs from their new album, and will be interviewed by Adam Donaldson, local writ­er and journalist and mem­ber of the Sharpcuts organizing committee. The event will be filmed for web distribution.

Sharpcuts’ Saturday pro­gram will remain the same, a day long presentation of inde­pendent short films from Guelph, across Ontario, and beyond. This year, they will be screened in the council cham­ber of the new Guelph city hall.

Friday means Fright Night for Sharpcuts, and the festival organizers are pleased to be able to celebrate the first ever Friday the 13th Fright Night with a variety of horror shorts and features. The Fright Night will be held at The Synnema.
