Centre Film Festival Returns- Nov.13-15th
All About Penn State - Centre Film Festival Returns
The Centre Film Festival will present a weekend of entertainment and insight with a curated selection of films. For the safety of all, this year the festival will be conducted virtually.
“We loved our inaugural year here in Centre County and at the Rowland Theatre, and we will miss seeing our community face to face this year,” said Pearl Gluck, artistic director of the Centre Film Festival and an associate professor of film production in the Donald P. Bellisario College of Communications at Penn State. “But, until we get back into the theater, and because of being able to conduct the festival virtually, we are able to bring filmmakers from all over the world and our country to people in their homes. We are really looking forward to the online conversations we will be able to have with our community as we watch films and discuss them.”
A complete schedule, ticket information and more for the Centre Film Festival may be found online.
The festival opens Nov. 13 with the coming-of-age movie “Definition Please” made by Sujata Day, from Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Other opening day highlights include the thriller “#Like,” which echoes terrifying true stories that are all over the internet of teens who are exploited or bullied and and what happens to the families left behind. Opening night also includes a midnight screening of the unnerving horror film “The Witch,” co-hosted with A24 and the Bellisario College of Communication Student Film Organization.
The night of Nov. 14 promises thrills and spills with “Stuntwomen: The Untold Story” and the suspense of a boy’s post-apocalyptic journey in “A Feral World.” Later, “Late Night with the Centre Film Festival” will take a look at the career of an internationally renowned Polish filmmaker who began making erotic films, in “Love Express: The Disappearance of Walerian Borowczyk.”
On Nov. 15, the final day of the festival, fans will get a second chance to view the short films for children in the morning, or they can view a selection of short films made by award-winning filmmakers focusing on the pandemic.
