NAME OF FESTIVAL: Camden International Film Festival
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.
Major Festival highlights include Matter Out Of Place, the latest from award-winning director Nikolaus Geyrhalter.
