What's better than watching three locally produced films at the Fox Theater? Getting in for free.

The mini film festival, which will be held at the Fox on Monday evening, includes three films made by the local chapter of Inclusion Films, a California organization that teaches filmmaking skills to adults with special needs. 

All three films were shot on location in Bakersfield and made by local Inclusion students, who write, direct, act and do everything else necessary to make their own films.

The three films to be shown are "Here and After," which is set in a cemetery and follows a day in the "life" of the graveyard inhabitants when someone new moves into the "neighborhood"; "Band of Misfits," a feel-good movie about teens facing their fears and discovering their talents for a battle of the bands; and "Revelation," which is about a surly teen finding out how his choices affect others.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and films start at 7 p.m. For more information, call Inclusion Films at 324-7400.
