The Crossroads International Film Festival opens Sunday, Feb. 11, with three films showing at the Darkside Cinema, 215 SW Fourth St., Corvallis. The festival continues on Sunday, Feb. 18 and 25.
Each year, volunteers review films and select five international films they find "engaging and entertaining." This year's selections include the classic comedy "Antonia's Line," along with a South African film, and a comedy drama from Taiwan exploring the balance between family life and sexual orientation.
This year, ticket prices are on a sliding scale basis. Attendees choose what they pay on a scale from $5 to $10 per film. Tickets at the festival can be purchased starting 30 minutes before each film.
All proceeds benefit Crossroads International's educational programs. For more information, see http://international.oregonstate.edu/crossroads/film-festival.
