Camden International Film Festival
Name of Festival: Camden International Film Festival
When: September 26 - 29, 2013
Where: Camden, Maine, USA
About the Festival: "Located on the rugged coast of Maine, .... Recognized as one of the top 25 film festivals in the world for documentary films and filmmakers, the festival highlights work that shows dedication to craft and a unique and artistic approach to telling a darn good story. We like films that blur the line between fact and fiction, films that inspire and inform and most importantly, entertain. 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. Alongside countless film screenings and Q&As with directors, we offer the Points North Forum, Panoptic (a showcase of new media and experimental artworks), impromptu musical performances, the freshest seafood in the world and unforgettable parties on boats, in boat houses, at world class galleries and sometimes even in old foundries. The towns we hold screenings in are close in proximity, and all have their own distinctive feel. Our main venues are Camden’s Opera House and Bayview Street Cinema and Rockland’s Strand Theatre and Farnsworth Art Museum."
The Camden International Film Festival announced the first round of "Official Selections" films that will screen at the 2012 festival from Sept. 27 - 30 in Camden, Maine. CIFF will screen over 70 films with the majority being followed by a Q&A with visiting filmmakers.

A decade after Slavik Kryklyvyy became the World Latin Dance Champion, he tries to regain the success that seemed to have slipped by him with a new partner and lover. Depicting their shifting dynamic through gestures, glances, and dance, this film evolves past the comeback, into a tragic love story, as Slavik's perfectionism drives a wedge between them.
