If you missed out on the Rincon International Film Festival’s incredibly successful event in April 2013, you have a second chance to support filmmakers from around the world while enjoying a delicious meal prepared by some of the best chefs in the area. That’s right, RIFF is partnering up with the Horned Dorset Primavera in Rincon Puerto Rico on Saturday, August 17, 2013, to bring you “An Evening at the Academy Awards,” where you have the opportunity to view four short films – two of which were nominated for a 2013 Academy Award for Best Short Film or Best Animation Short Film, and two of which won Academy Awards for Best Short Film or Best Animation Short Film.
Most people don’t have the opportunity to attend the Oscars, but thanks to the Rincon International Film Festival, you can enjoy a special evening at an upscale Rincon Puerto Rico restaurant in the company of award-winning filmmakers. On August 17, “An Evening at the Academy Awards” will begin with cocktails at 6:00 pm, followed by the film program at 7:00 pm and a delicious five-course meal at 8:00 pm, for a total of $85 per person. The film program will feature four short films created by three filmmakers hailing from the United States and South Africa, including:
“Maggie Simpson: The Longest Daycare”
