The Weekly has a big cover story on the third annual Loft Film Festival, which begins tonight with A Royal Affair, which was a big winner at this year's Berlin Film Festival.
Loft programming director Jeff Yanc had this to say about A Royal Affair:
This is the Danish Oscar submission this year. It's an 18th-century historical film, very juicy. It looks at love and politics. It's a love triangle with an insane king and a queen and a German physician, and trouble ensues, of course.
There's a whole bunch more on tap, including tomorrow's grand opening of Screen 3, the Loft's new theater. Check out the festival schedule here. There's something for everyone at the festival, so get over there sometime this weekend, OK?
