The first moving picture, which depicted a horse running at full gallop, was quickly enhanced by the first special effects, which showed a horse exploding next to a 3-D spaceship. Enjoy advances in film with today's Groupon to Fallbrook Film Festival, which runs from Friday, April 8, through Sunday, April 10, in Bonsall. Choose between two options:
- For $10, you get two tickets to a single screening (a $20 value).
- For $15, you get a one-day festival pass (a $30 value).
Founded by the nonprofit Fallbrook Film Factory, Fallbrook Film Festival brandishes a diverse roster of independent shorts, features, and documentaries. The single-screening tickets grant access to either one feature-length film or one block of short films (screenings are around two hours long) for enjoyment by two people and unlimited pet ghosts. Attend screening eight on Saturday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. to see Cellular, a thriller starring Kim Basinger that centers around two randomly connected strangers and a Machiavellian rotary-dial phone.
Also in this year's lineup are two selections from the Sundance Film Festival: Stones, a student film about Hawaiian culture, and Living for 32, a documentary about a survivor of the Virginia Tech shooting and his changed understanding of gun laws. Unquenchable film fanatics can opt for the one-day festival pass to jam eyes and ears full of cinematic morsels. Friday's and Saturday's lineups both contain five screenings, and Sunday packs in 10; check the lineup here.
