When the lights go down at The Screening Room, which is part of the Hygienic festivities, here's what will come up on screen:
• "The Date," by Luke Matheny, who won a 2011 Oscar for best live action short film for "God of Love," focuses on two friends who find love over a bowl of soup.
• "Ditching School to Whistle," directed by its 21-year-old star Ien Chi, was named best film at Beneath Earth Film Festival.
• "The Man Who Lived on His Bike," by Guillaume Blanchet, follows him as he rides his bicycle through Montreal for 382 days.
The Screening Room offers a real mix of movies - from both new and longtime filmmakers, from around the region and around the world. This indie film fest hews to the Hygienic mantra, too: no judge, no jury, no entry fee, no censorship.
