A brief overview of some of Ithaca's upcoming sscreenings and shows.

This Wednesday marks the start of the International Ithaca Fantastic Film Festival at Cinemapolis and Cornell Cinema. The festival, which will run for five days, will pay a special retrospective tribute to sci-fi screenwriter Dan O'Bannon, who is best known for his original screenplay Alien. According to the festival's homepage, "“Dan O’Bannon: Re-thinking the monsters” will showcase six films, including Dead and Buried, Alien, and Lifeforce." Other fantastic films that made this year's cut include, the South Korean film Confession of Murder, the German film Nothing Bad Can Happen, and the American documentary Bending Steel.

And as for local theater, this month you have the opportunity to see Pulitzer-winning playwright Sam Shepard’s A Lie of the Mind this weekend and next, that's November 15-16 and the 22-23, at the Flexible Theatre. This show opens, what will be, the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts' 25th season. Some other plays you can see there during this historic season include, Shakespeare's bloody Titus Andronicus in the Blackbox Theatre, David Ives's collection of short comic plays Mere Mortals, and Far From Canterbury, a Cornell student written play that is described as a reimagining of the famous text's "The Wife of Bath's Tale."
