Festival of Films, an online source for free indie films, web series, shorts, and other features, has released its content schedule for the week of Dec. 11, 2011. Available at http://www.Festival-of-Films.com, Festival of Films offers fresh content daily for visitors interested in watching free movies online and on their mobile devices, including many items relating to film festivals and topical events.
“Unlike many free movie sites online, Festival of Films is piracy-free — a comforting thought for visitors and advertisers alike. We work hard to provide a constant stream of classic and new free movies online for our visitors, with content optimized for easy mobile consumption,” said Andy Schupak, President of Festival-of-Films.com and contributor for The Huffington Post.
A resource for viewers looking to find short films online, Festival of Films will begin the week of Dec. 11 with “Thrush,” a 2009 indie short previously recognized by Vimeo. “Thrush” illustrates love and loss in a relationship through a series of snapshots presented in a scrapbook style. Directed by Gabriel Bisset-Smith and Graham Turner, “Thrush” has been praised for its accessible DIY aesthetic and masterful storytelling, all in under five minutes.
On Monday, Dec. 13, Festival of Films will add an Occupy Wall Street news clip to its collection of free documentaries online. Coming from “Hardball With Chris Matthews,” the clip discusses the message of the OWS movement with protestors Tyler Combelic and Michael Premo.
For visitors looking to watch free full movies online, Tuesday’s Alfred Hitchcock Film Festival will offer seven legendary options directed by the Master of Suspense himself. Outdoing many free movie sites online, Festival of Films is including such classics as “Notorious,” a 1946 spy drama starring Ingrid Bergman; “Blackmail,” a detective movie set in 1920s London; and “Foreign Correspondent,” the famed director’s first thriller set on U.S. soil.
Wednesday and Friday will bring three new free movies online, beginning with “They Came Back,” a 2004 French fantasy chronicling a small town’s reaction to the return of the recently dead. On Friday, “Time to Kill” (1991) and “Listen to Your Heart” (2010) will join the roster of free new movies online, transporting viewers to 1936 Ethopia and contemporary New York City, respectively.
On Thursday, Festival of Films will introduce half a dozen funny videos online from the LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival, from “bearrorist” satire “Bear Force One” to “The Adoption Agency,” a look at what would happen if Kim Jong Il appeared before an American adoption screening committee.
Rounding out the week, Festival of Films will showcase six short films online from the Viral Video Awards. The features here encompass both serious and funny videos online; visitors can examine the plight of migrant workers in the Middle East in a 2010 feature from Esra’a Al Shafei, for example, then cool down with a bite-sized short showing Darth Vader attempting to record GPS instructions.
