After four long and auspicious days; the Oxford Film Festival concludes tonight (Sunday, February 21) by screening the closing night film “Babysitter” at 5:30 at the Powerhouse Community Arts Center.
Historically, film festival Sunday is a more laid-back, catch-up type of day where patrons, OFF organizers and filmmakers alike can check out a few films they might have missed along the way. It’s also a good day for filmmakers to sleep in for the first time since (perhaps) Tuesday, procure transportation out of Oxford (if necessary) and generally take a deep breath and re-fuel from five days of physical abuse.
As a final a heads-up; HottyToddy.com would like to share what’s in store today for those who can manage to rally the troops and make one last-ditch effort to cross the proverbial finish line of one of the biggest and most successful festivals to date – or Lucky No. 13 as we like to think of it.
