Although it will be my first year there, the Pangram Film Festival is in its seventh year. It is not a place where films are tested on unsuspecting audiences or premieres are launched in attempts to get distributors and garner critical praise. But the films, which range from recent releases to early black and whites, and run the gamut from classic to cruddy camp, have a theme you won't find at any other film festival. The titles, combined, form a holoalphabetic pangram.
