The Marblehead Festival of Arts Short Film Festival is an outdoor festival that is screened at Crocker Park and at an indoor location during the Festival weekend (please see the Schedule below for the location and time). Films selected will be eligible for cash and other prizes. The selected films may also be screened at the Festival’s Winter Film Festival held in February of the following year.
Film Festival works are intended to show the many ways that film and video can be used as an art form to inform and express. They are not commercial films of the sort that you can find in your standard multiplex. Although some of these works can certainly be enjoyed by children, not all of the films may be understood by them. Parents should review the lineup and decide if the films are appropriate for their younger children.
Chairpersons: Mike Evers, Laurie Stolarz, committee members: Paulina Villarroel Cruz, Steve Krom, James Maroney, Bill Smalley.
The 2017 Short Film Festival Premiere will be held the evening of Sunday, July 2nd at Crocker Park beginning at 9:00 pm. In the event of inclement weather, we will announce an alternate location at 4:00 pm here on that day.
There will be no workshops this year.
Unitarian Universalist Church, 28 Mugford Street
Tuesday, July 4th from 10:30 am—12:30 pm
The complete Film Festival will be shown, and will conclude with a question and answer session with the filmmakers who are present.
