Bronx, N.Y.—There will be films—about love, relationships, heart break, growing up, and more—at the annual Bronx International Film Festival, Thurs., Dec. 6 through Sat., Dec. 8, at 8 p.m. in the Lovinger Theatre. Now celebrating its 10-year anniversary, the Festival will showcase new narrative and documentary film from filmmakers from around the world, and around the corner.
The three-day Festival will include documentaries, shorts, as well as feature length films. The Festival will open with a film by French filmmaker Jérôme Maldhé, titled Vole Comme Un Papillon, about a young boy dealing with the loss of his best friend.
In the three-minute, animated short Naufragos, director Marco Rico focuses on the communications between two castaways, separated by distance.
In another entry, titled The World Outside, by filmmaker Zachery Kerschberg, we see one parolee’s struggle to stay out of prison.
A total of thirty films will be shown, many of them with an urban appeal. The Festival was established to pay homage to and revitalize the history of film in the Bronx and to provide a new avenue for filmmakers to submit work.
Tickets are $5 for one-day passes, $12 for three-day passes. For more information, visit bronxfilmfestival.com.
