Roseville animal lovers invited to Animal Film Festival

February 25, 2014 by  

CAPE (the Center for Animal Protection and Education) is inviting Roseville animal lovers to its First Annual Animal Film Festival this weekend. The focus of the festival is to promote change as well as to entertain.

Since May of last year, more than 50 film entries from all over the world have been flooding into CAPE to be screened for the festival. Twenty have been selected to vie for prizes in categories such as ‘Films that make you laugh’ and ‘Home-made Movies about the Animals in our Lives’.

The schedule is divided into two sections. The morning session is geared to children and will features animated and short films—running from 2 – 14 minutes in length.

The afternoon session will consist of feature films and documentaries covering topics such as wildlife, animals as companions, and animals used in laboratories and in entertainment. Awards will be presented and the audience will have the opportunity to meet some of the filmmakers. Vegan food will be available for purchase afterwards.

Those who attend the festival may wish to contract with print companies for banner printing to help educate others about animal rights.

The Festival will take place on March 1, at The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley. The morning session starts at 11:00 am and runs to 1:00 pm. Afternoon session will run from 2:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
