If you’re reading this publication, chances are you appreciate getting a dose of news, arts, entertainment, and culture from a source somewhere a little outside the mainstream. If that’s the case — and we know it is — Park Circle Films has an event this week that should be right in your wheelhouse. Now in its third year, the Rural Route Shorts Program comes to the Park Circle Film Society, bringing 11 short documentary and fictitious narrative tales of rural life to the indie screen. “You can get some pretty out-there ideas that work great at 10 to 12 minutes that would not really work at the 99 [minute] mark,” says film society board member and past president Nicholai Burton. Some of this year’s shorts include a six-minute whimsical animation drama about a Belgian rooster, high-def footage from spy cams left in birds’ nests or stuck on the backs of animals, and a documentary about “turf cutters” who work in the bogs of Ireland. “We try to pick out unique things that haven’t been seen anywhere else,” says Alan Webber who runs the Rural Route Film Festival and the shorts program. “Everything fits our theme of highlighting rural scenes and cultures outside of the city and mainstream media.”
