The event will present more than 70 films, both features and shorts, from all across the globe, including a number of World, U.S. and regional premieres.
“Submissions to the festival nearly doubled this year, and the quality of work continues to grow,” said Ben Fowlie, founder and director of the Camden International Film Festival. “This year’s program is a collection of films that show how diverse the documentary medium is and how creative filmmakers have become at sharing their stories. We have films that will transport our viewers to every corner of the globe, providing an intimate glimpse into our surrounding world.”
Nearly every film will be accompanied by a post-screening question and answer session with attending directors or producers. More than sixty industry representatives and filmmakers from all over the world will be in attendance over the course of the four-day festival.
The festival will also expand upon its Points North Documentary Forum. Now celebrating its fourth edition, Points North is a two-day conference taking place on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 28-29, at the Camden Opera House.
