Indie film festival returning to Frederick

June 11, 2013 by  

Independent film lovers in Frederick will be pleased to learn that their city is continuing its tradition of offering summer movie screenings.

During the last weekend of the month, the Frederick Film Festival will be returning to the community for the fifth straight year. Stationery printers may be seeing more use as the organizers of the festival correspond with their partners, Cinema Arts and the Weinberg Center for the Arts, in the weeks leading up to the big event.

The film festival will showcase dozens of indie movies and documentaries. Feature-length films will include ‘The Klezmatics: On Holy Ground’, a highly-acclaimed chronicle of a musical band’s experiences. Its director, Erik Greenberg Anjou, will be present for the screening. The Klezmatics will also be on hand to offer a live performance.

Local high-school students will have a part in the festival as well. Aspiring young filmmakers from Frederick and nearby communities have entered their work in a competition. Those who perform especially well in the contest will receive recognition and prizes.

The Frederick Film Festival will take place at the Weinberg Center for the Arts (20 West Patrick Street). It will begin on Friday, June 28 and end on Sunday, June 30. Tickets for Friday and Sunday will cost $10. Those attending on Saturday will pay a $20 entrance fee to cover their admission to the concert. Attendees will also have the option of purchasing all-weekend passes for $30.

Those wishing to purchase tickets or learn more details about the festival may call (301) 600-2828.
