BRATTLEBORO FILM FESTIVAL OPENS HALLOWEEN NIGHT
31 FILMS AND SPECIAL EVENTS FOR EVERYONE
OPENING WEEKEND -- AND BEYOND!
Brattleboro, VT, 31 October 2014: The 3rd Annual Brattleboro Film Festival (BFF) opens on Friday, October 31 and continues to November 9, 2014 for 10 days of 31 films, visiting filmmakers, workshops and other special treats.
The festival kicks off Friday, October 31, 2014 with a reception free and open to the public at the Latchis Hotel Lobby, 50 Main Street in Brattleboro. Food, refreshments and live music with Hannah Hoffman and a looping reel of trailers from all films will be shown in the hotel lobby as well at the Latchis Theatre’s Gallery Four storefront.
Our opening film, which starts at 6:30 pm in the gorgeous, recently renovated Latchis main theater, is the Southern Vermont premiere of PRIDE. Just released, PRIDE is being called the ‘feel-good movie of the year’ and is generating strong Oscar buzz for its rare combination of drama, humor and democratic themes. Don’t let the R rating scare away tween and teens -- BFF and IMDB says the rating should be more like PG-13 and recommends it highly for these ages.
At 8:30 pm “1971” a scary and suspenseful political docu-drama will screen. Celebrated journalist Christian Parenti, author of “The Soft Cage: Surveillance in America from Slavery to the War on Terror,” and resident of Brattleboro and New York who teaches at New York University, will lead a post film discussion.
