Black Bear Film Festival
MILFORD, PA — The Black Bear Film Festival will take place from Friday, October 14 through Sunday, October 16 at the Milford Theatre and the Pike County Library.
Main Stage films, at the theatre, will feature documentaries including “Dear President Obama: The Clean Energy Revolution Is Now,” narrated by Mark Ruffalo; dramatic films such as “Little Men,” which follows a pair of 13-year-old boys fighting to preserve a friendship torn apart by a bad family business deal; and classics like “That Championship Season,” which will be accompanied by a Q&A session with executive producer Bob Levine. There will also be a panel discussion on women filmmakers on Sunday, October 16 at 5:15 p.m. (See www.blackbearfilm.com/events/main-stage-films/ for full Main Stage schedule.)
Salon events, at the Pike County Public Library, are free, but require a ticket, available 30 minutes prior to the event. The Salon will feature local filmmakers, student films from the region, and the work of American, Canadian, Australian, and other filmmakers, along with a casting director, actors, directors, animators, and music producers. Last year the Salon premiered a short titled “Vandal” that went onto to be featured at the Cannes Film Festival. At 4 p.m., on Saturday, October 14, a Student Showcase presents 10 films by students. Other programs focus on hip-hop and animation, casting and climate change. (See www.blackbearfilm.com/events/salon-films for full Salon schedule.)
