80 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, October 9 - October 15, 1998 A night of 00litz and glamour raises funds for Rehoboth Film F 00stival Almost 250 supporters of the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival made their way to the light-enveloped home of Mario and Rebecca Capano in Re- hoboth Beach Yacht & Country Club Development on Saturday evening, Oct. 3, for a benefit gala hosted by the Rehoboth Beach Film Society. "It was a great success," said society president and cofounder Rob Rector, who noted that the Capanos have invited them back for next year's fundraiser. "The support of the community has been fantastic and the work of board members, volunteers and restaurants donating delicacies are greatly appreciated," Rector added. With the first Independent Film Festival slated for Thursday through Sunday, Nov. 12 to 15, they have selected more than 90 films from more than 15 different countries, several of which have either been nominated for Oscars, have won the equivalent of Oscars in their homeland, or have been in such major film festivals as Cannes and Sundance. Funds raised Saturday evening will help the society acquire these films and round out the festival with workshops, guest lectures and children's programs, not to mention the opening night gala on Thursday, Nov. 12, at the Bottle & Cork, when distinguished Balti- more-native director John Waters and PBS film critic Pat Stoner will be the featured hosts. For the following three days, films will be shown on all six screens at Rehoboth Mall The- aters, with video programs to be held at the Atlantic Sands Confer- ence Center, according to festival Continued on page 81 Trish Vernon photo Rehoboth Film Society organizers and gala hosts gather together.
