Film festival lineup revealed

WINCHESTER — Film Club 3.0 Founder Andy Gyurisin admits it can be a challenge meeting heightened expectations following last October’s Lost Weekend film festival, though the next series of films has done just that.

“We pulled some of the great indie foreign films that have come out in the past year, and to have two Oscar-nominated films and just a broad reach from across the world is really exciting,” Gyurisin said.

“For people looking for comedies, romance, action, mysteries, we’re going to try to have it all for them,” he added.

The third Lost Weekend festival features 16 films over four days from March 5 to 8 at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.

Here is the lineup for Lost Weekend III, as announced at the Alamo on Wednesday:

March 5
“Mommy” at 7 p.m.

March 6
“Inherent Vice” at 11 a.m.
“Chappie” at 1:45 p.m.
“Zero Motivation” at 4:15 p.m.
“Human Capital” at 7 p.m.
“Amira and Sam” at 9:30 p.m.
“It Follows” at 11:30 p.m.

March 7
“Song of the Sea” at 11 a.m.
“The Mafia Kills Only in Summer” at 1 p.m.
“Man from Reno” at 3 p.m.
“The Connection” at 6:45 p.m.
“What We Do in the Shadows” at 9:45 p.m.

March 8
“Take Me to the River” at 10:30 a.m.
“Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter” at 12:30 p.m.

A silent auction held from 5:15 to 6:45 p.m. Saturday will benefit the SPCA of Winchester, Frederick and Clarke counties.

Weekend passes, which were $35, are now sold out.

Lost Weekend III has three more films and starts a day earlier than the second Lost Weekend in October. Gyurisin said the festival could grow even larger in the future.

“Sundance runs for a week,” he said, “so let’s see what happens as we continue to build this.”
