Screening of Short Films at the Circle Foundation

One of my good friends directed one of the short films at the upcoming Imagine Short Film Festival.


Although the films are not necessarily gay-related, my friend's film (titled Sinchon) does have a gay theme. As it is this Thursday and I have my final test on Friday I won't be able to attend, but I encourage my readers to go.
