The Fox News Of Film Fests

The American Film Renaissance, which bills itself as the world’s first and only conservative-leaning film festival, wrapped up recently in Dallas, and Britain’s left-leaning newspaper of record couldn’t resist sending a correspondent. What he found was a group of extremely earnest Americans longing for a few movies that represent their worldview. That worldview apparently includes a fictional Don Rumsfeld predicting the 9/11 attacks in advance, Ann Coulter as a plain-speaking truth-teller, and former government officials explaining “how abortion is robbing America’s retired people of their welfare safety net.”
