"Skylight" is one of the new films just added to the Edmonds Film Festival line-up.

The excitement continues to build for the Edmonds International Film Festival, with more film showings and workshops announced at edmondsfilmfestival.com. Here are some of the latest offerings:

“Frequent Flier” 
Friday, Oct. 22,  7:30-10 p.m.
The Edmonds Theater, 415 Main St.
In addition to the previously announced Rick Steves travel documentary, “Andalucia,” the festival will screen during this time block the 20-minute documentary “Frequent Flier.” Gabriel Leigh takes us on a flight of frequent flyer mile-inspired mileage runs and general wackiness aboard airlines in search of the free round-the-world first class ticket.

Saturday, Oct. 23, 5-7 p.m.
The Edmonds Theater, 415 Main St.
Added to the previously announced “The Movie Girl” in this time block are two short films:
– “Skylight” is a mock animated documentary about the ecological plight of penguins in the Antarctic, possibly foretelling cataclysmic results for the rest of the world.
– “True Beauty This Night,” a 10-minute tale of love at first sight.

Performance for the Camera for Actors and Directors

Tony Doupe

Taught by Tony Doupe, a professional actor who also serves a professor and drama department advisor at Shoreline Community College, this workshop that explores successful acting techniques for camera performance and the creative working relationship between actor and director. It’s designed for novice to intermediate actors looking to break into acting for the camera or obtaining some professional advice to help them get to the next level. Doupe currently works in the industry, and in fact was originally slated to teach two workshops but was cast in a major role in “The River Sorrow” starring Ray Liotta, and will have to shoot the day after he teaches at the Edmonds Film Festival.

Saturday, Oct. 23, 2010, 10 -11:30 a.m.
