  3. Shorts Film Program- The Arts in Film -Saturday

    120 mins
    “The Arts in Film” has been a core element, a large Section actually, of the Wine Country Film Festival from the very beginning in 1986. The intent of the Arts in Film is to present films that inform and inspire, that provide insight into the inner workings of art forms that are enjoyed in their finished product, but the process is hidden. Here are some of the very best short films that showcase The Arts in Film - includes Currencies, Fading Nocturne, Molat and Molat, Syncretic Noise, The Teacup, The Whirl and White.

    In This Program: Currencies, Fading Nocturne, Molat and Molat, Syncretic Noise, The Teacup, The Whirl, White
