2018 RIDGWAY CREATIVE DISTRICT EVENT FLYERS
4th Annual Independent Film Fest
This year’s Independent Film Fest, organized by the Ridgway Creative District in collaboration with the Ridgway Chautauqua Society’s Sherbino Theater, will feature international films, juried by a local group of citizens. The Film Fest expanded to two nights this year! Doors open at 6:30 each evening.
You do not want to miss this year’s Film Fest, as it is going to be quite the international affair! For our 4th annual event (now expanded to 2 nights), we had 103 entries from 24 countries across the globe. We will be screening 21 films this year, from 13 countries (Australia, Bangladesh, Croatia, Germany, India, Islamic Republic of Iran, Mexico, Romania, Russian Federation, South Africa, Turkey, United Kingdom & the United States)!
On Friday, we will screen 10 films in the 'Youth & Amateur' categories, and on Saturday we'll show the 11 'Professional' category films. Due to the multinational nature of the films, none of the filmmakers will be present to discuss their films, but there will be accompanying clips, made specifically for our event, from many of the filmmakers, and there may even be a couple of them able to join us via video-chat.
Awards for the Best Youth & Amateur films will be announced Friday night, and Best Professional film will be awarded Saturday night. This year, there will be a brand new "Mayor's Choice" award announced on Saturday night as well.
Tell your friends and neighbors; this is going to be an event to remember in Ridgway!
