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 Foursite Film Festival. Choose from the following options:

The eighth annual Foursite Film Festival regales cinephiles of the Ogden community with a lineup of short films, documentaries, children's films, and other independently produced pictures. With today's first and third options, cinema sophisticates can experience the harrowing story of a paraplegic man attempting to scale Mount Kilimanjaro in the documentary One Revolution, or relive moments of motherly creepiness in the short horror feature An Evening with my Comatose Mother. Consult the schedule of events and free up time to fastidiously critique every film in the festival, or check out the fest's best at the June 10 Awards Ceremony, which includes free popcorn, refreshments, and graduate-level lectures on the French New Wave.
Today's second option provides a pair of tickets to the June 11, closing-night premier of Chloe and the Great Fish. This family-friendly flick retells the biblical story of Jonah and the whale through the eyes of an imaginative young girl, ultimately imparting lessons about one's sense of belonging and how to survive in the digestive tracts of marine mammals. The festival runs from June 9–11 at four different Ogden venues.
