From their website…
“Located on the rugged coast of Maine, the Camden International Film Festival will return for its seventh season from September 29 – October 2, 2011. Recognized as one of the top 25 film festivals in the world for documentary films and filmmakers, the festival highlights work that show dedication to craft and a unique and artistic approach to telling a darn good story. Films are selected because of their ability to arouse discussion on documentary film as an art form, a catalyst for change and as an outlet for the independent voice.
Each year the Camden International Film Festival takes over multiple venues throughout three coastal towns in Maine. Nestled against the mighty Atlantic during fall’s explosion of color, the festival becomes a unique setting to experience the very best in international documentary film. Accompanying the screening of nearly fifty features and shorts are Q&A’s with directors and producers, informative panels, the Points North Documentary Forum, PANOPTIC (a showcase of new media and experimental artworks), musical concerts, unforgettable parties and an opportunity to connect with eager audiences and industry leaders in an extremely intimate setting.
The towns we hold screenings in are close in proximity, but all have their own distinctive feel. Our main venues are Camden’s Opera House and Bayview St. Cinema, the Rockport Opera House and Rockland’s Strand Theatre and Farnsworth Art Museum.”
The CIFF is another Hartstone Inn guest favorite. We are so lucky to live in Camden, Maine – a place that is filled with so many fun events!
