The award-winning GI Film Festival (GIFF), the nation’s only military film festival, today released the official trailer compilation for the 2012 event, which will take place May 15-20 in Washington, D.C.
The compilation, produced by military filmmaker Kyle Hausmann-Stokes, provides a glimpse at some of the festival’s premiere films. The full program, including times and locations, is available on the festival’s website.
Overall, the sixth annual festival line-up offers 42 film screenings — movies that represent every branch of the military and span five wars. Over the course of the six-day event, the festival will offer 23 narrative films and 19 documentaries covering every genre conceivable – from action and adventure to drama and romance. With at least a dozen world premiere screenings, GIFF offers plenty of opportunities to discover emerging directors, producers and actors.
The event will also feature an advanced screening of this summer’s action blockbuster “Battleship” on May 17, the day before it opens nationwide.
