What Sport Makes The Best Movies?

What Sport Makes The Best Movies?

A recent preview of the new Marky Mark film The Fighter provoked a discussion among many of my friends that generated the question, "What is the best kind of sports film?" Many people have ranked sports movies over the years, and have done so in various ways: some by the individual sport, some lump all sports together, and some by sports movies starring Kevin Costner.

The DMV Indie Film Showcase

In my first blog here I wrote about the exciting but under-the-radar local film scene. So I'm thrilled to do my part in putting some local filmmakers on the radar by announcing The DMV Indie Film Showcase, which will highlight some of the D.C. Area's brightest filmmaking talent. The event will take place Thursday December 2 and Sunday December 5 at 7PM at the Cinema Arts Theatre in Fairfax.

My production company, Ciscovaras Pictures, is hosting the event and we are very fortunate to have a program of short films selected by Sydney-Chanele Dawkins of Cinema A La Mode. Sydney-Chanele sees hundreds of films every year and she has picked some of the best to screen at the DMV Indie Film Showcase. Here are some of the shorts from the program, which include several Rosebud winners:
