Sometimes, you just want to sit in a room full of smart and funny folks who are great at making fun of things. That opportunity presents itself in grand fashion at the Sham Film Festival this Friday and Saturday (September 25 and 26) at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; 314-968-7487 or www.webster.edu/film-series). At this hilarious fest, enjoy the works of filmmakers who've been given carte blanche to satirize and spoof everything from cheesy reality TV to overly dramatic movie trailers. The filmmakers here (professionals, students, hobbyists, dilettantes) are competing for the coveted Palm'd Oar, the festival's big prize. The festival opens with a selection of short subjects at 7 p.m. Friday and 5 p.m. Saturday; feature films Bloodsucking Bastards (8:45 p.m. Friday) Kittens in a Cage and Dude Bro Party Massacre III (7 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. Saturday, respectively) are also shown. Admission is $10 per screening, but single-day ($15) or festival passes ($30) are available.
Price: $10 per screening, $15-$30 for festival passes
