Kaspar's Kouch Film Festival 2

Those who attended the first Kaspar's Kouch Film Festival will recall the personal attention they received from the festival director, who not only screened and introduced the films in the living room of his apartment, but prepared and served the popcorn, snacks and beverages himself. Alas, Dustin Kaspar will not be hosting or cooking for the festival this year. The staff of the Central Cinema will. However, do not fret. In addition to providing a greater viewership opportunity with a 118 seat theater, the Central Cinema menu will provide festival patrons with a host of intriguing choices. Namely, should one order the puttanesca or the diabolo pizza with Once Upon A Time In America and would accompanying Wings of Desire with a braised chicken confit, a glass of banquette de limoux, a cr/(R)me br/alee and a French press coffee be overdoing it?

Dustin, of course, will be introducing the films. In addition to screening an assortment of chestnuts, he will be presenting a secret-fest night, featuring two films which have not been released domestically on video [Hint: A RETICENCE PLOT] and the Seattle premiere of two low budget indie films, The Milk Can and In Memorium. Admission to the festival is $7 per film or $10 for a double-feature. A full series pass is available for $50. For more information, please contact Dustin Kaspar 206-437-8852.
