This year's festival consists of two shorts programs, each one followed by a short Q&A session with filmmakers, and a 30-minute intermission between the programs. I have seen and heard of most of the films in the festival, and it's a pretty solid evening of cinema. For more information, and to buy tickets, visit the KAFFNY website here.
