The MFoA Offers a Winter Film Festival

Marblehead, MA (January 29, 2015) – The Winter Film Festival will be held at the Abbott Public Library on Wednesday, February 18 from 7 to 9pm adjacent to the Carten Gallery. Selected films originate from England, Australia, Spain and the US. Viewers will see a mix of comedy, drama, documentaries and first person stories as well as animation and music videos. Film Festival Co-Chair Mike Evers explains, “The goal of the Winter Film Festival is to show viewers the creativity and innovation available beyond the commercial realm of film.”

Evers continues, “The short film format shows how the film maker can display their art in as little as 2 minutes or create a story in 15. Viewers will experience the emotions, visual depth and great stories that come from these short films.”

The Future’ and ‘Intuition’ explore relationships from very different and personal perspectives. Several films look at individual stories of trauma, tragedy and triumph. The Festival organizers also bring a number of films that have received popular acclaim at other regional film festivals. The film ‘Solo Piano NYC ’ is set on a New York City street and chronicles passers-by as they respond to a lone piano.

The audience will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite film. Several film makers have been invited to attend for audience discussion and questions. Admission is free and reservations are recommended due to limited seating. For additional information please visit www.MarbleheadFestival.org.
