The 55th Annual Columbus International Film & Video Festival, the oldest in the US, begins this Sunday. The festival, started by progressive educators, has a continuing history of showing work that deals with issues of gender, sexuality, culture, labor relations, international politics, and the environment. The festival runs from Nov.4 – 11.

This year the festival has two free screenings: one at the Shamrock Club and the other at Germania, a German cultural and singing club.

“Little Brazil, Gort, Ireland” screening at The Shamrock Club, (60 West Castle Road, Columbus, OH) at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4, is the fascinating story of one of Ireland’s newest and most unusual immigrant communities — the 1,500 or so Brazilians who live in the town of Gort.

To check out video clips of this year’s films, and for more information, log on to www.chrisawards.org.
