as the movie lover’s dream vacation, the weekend festival starts late
Friday morning and ends early on Sunday evening. Screenings

double feature plus short subjects. Each session contains
intermissions and there are generous breaks between sessions (allowing
for meals) as well. The philosophy of Capitolfest is that
there should be time to savor the films, thus our slogan, “A vacation,
not a marathon.”
