Movie shorts “Miss Represent,” “Funk Force 2018,” and “Exposing Politics” will precede the featured film, Benedict Dorsey’s “The Advice” on Saturday, June 1.

Artistic talent, actors and producers will answer questions following the movies.

Tickets in advance are $10 and the cost at the door is $15. Persons attending the 8th Annual Festival held in February will be admitted free if they have the complimentary tickets issued at that festival.
