Camden International Film Festival 2014

CIFF announces film slate

Sep 03, 2014

The Camden International Film Festival has announced the slate of feature and short films for the 10th festival, set for Thursday through Sunday, Sep. 25 through 28 in Camden, Rockport and Rockland. CIFF will present more than 60 features and short films from all across the globe, and from Maine, with filmmakers in attendance at nearly every screening.

The Camden International Film Festival presents a snapshot of the cultural landscape through the year’s best non-fiction storytelling.  The festival is recognized as one of the top 12 documentary film festivals in the world, and one of the 12 best small-town film festivals in the United States. In addition to the festival’s expanded Points North Fellowship, CIFF 2014 has a new partnership with Al Jazeera’s AJ+ to host the first AJ+ live pitch.

In addition to the main slate of films, which includes Points North Pitch alum “In Country” and “Mateo,” CIFF will screen the Cinema Eye Honors’ Nonfiction Short Film Finalists, whose titles will be announced from the festival later this month. The Points North Documentary Forum lineup of films, speakers and panels will be announced later this week.

"We couldn’t be more pleased with this year’s festival program," said Ben Fowlie, founder and executive director of the Camden International Film Festival.

"Over the past 10 years, we’ve had the opportunity to share a selection of films that highlight both the creativity and unique ways artists are using to tell stories, and the impact these stories can have on community. This year is no exception,” he said.
