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: James Maroney, Patricia Rogers, Bill Smalley, Paulina Villarroel Cruz, Hannah Bragdon, and Ashley Pozzuto, Intern
