The Monadnock International Film Festival is coming to nearby Keene, NH Thursday, April 4th through Saturday, April 6th, 2013. The festival’s goal is to bring world class film and film makers that inspire as well as reinforce the power of film to New England’s beautiful Mondanock Region. The Monadnock Region has a long history of great art and social awareness so this latest collaboration of artists, local film makers and producers, community leaders and businesses is a natural next step.
MonIFF will be held in various Keene locations throughout the three day event and feature not only great films with their film makers and actors in attendance, but panel discussions with film makers, a series of film shorts and even “after” parties each night. These events provide an opportunity to see some creative films and rub elbows with the film creators all while highlighting some of the region’s finest theaters and eateries.
Walpole’s own Ken Burns will be on hand during the festival as he accepts the Jonathan Daniels Award and attends the showing of his latest film The Central Park Five. The film, a story of injustice involving five black and Latino teens wrongfully charges with brutally attacking and raping a white female jogger in 1989, will be shown Saturday, April 6th at 7pm at Keene’s historic Colonial Theater. Another Walpolean, award-winning writer and documentary filmmaker Dayton Duncan, will be part of the Documentary Film Panel scheduled for 11 am Friday, April 5th at Keene’s Courtyard Marriott.
