NIHILIST YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS
If you've had your fill of peppy good cheer this time of year, try the Nihilist International Film Festival for an existential change of pace. The 11th annual showcase presents a variety of short films from around the world, some profound, some silly and all totally meaningless. As festival director (and longtime host of now-defunct public-access TV show Nihilists' Corner) Elisha Shapiro says, "How weird can a film get and still be entertaining?" While nihilists may not believe in anything, some apparently feel their TVs could use a bit of divine intervention, and they'll be hauling over their sets for the traditional "Blessing of the Televisions" prior to the show.
