The Cabriolet Film Festival will roll out the red-carpet on the St. Nicholas Steps for the 10th edition this weekend, with a selection of recent short films from around the world.Founded in 2009, the Cabriolet festival has been bringing wide selections of shorts – ranging from documentary to animation – to Gemmayzeh's historic staircase.The opening film, four-minute "Je Ne Veux Pas Mourir" by Italy's Massimo Loi and Gianluca Mangiasciutti, has minimal dialogue.For those unfamiliar with short films, in comparison to the mass consumption of features, Samaha sees the festival as a way for the Lebanese public to experience a different type of entertainment.
