Time for some shameless self-promotion. I'm one of the organizers of the SharpCuts Indie Film & Music Festival in Guelph, and it kicks off tomorrow night and runs through till Sunday. And while this is hardly political related, I encourage all you Politico readers to come out either one night, or every night to see some great, local indie cinema, some of which may also feature certain people that run certain political blogs. Check out the details below:
