Film festival with full slate is wrapping up in Maine
WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — The Maine International Film Festival is wrapping up this weekend with a full schedule of showings.
The annual film festival, which began on July 9 and concludes Sunday, has had showings at the Waterville Opera House, Railroad Square Cinema, the Skowhegan Drive-in Theater and online.
Last year, the event was scaled down because of the pandemic, with showings at the drive-in and online. This year, as things opened up, organizers scrambled to scale up the festival.
This was the 24th Maine International Film Festival.
Among the Festival’s programming highlights were several world premieres, three Maine features, two rounds of Maine-made short films, and an anti-racist photography and projection project.
