Please join us at the Newport 60+ Activity Center on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 from 11:30 – 1:00 PM for a free film festival to see Bacon & God’s Wrath, From the Stars and Snow. Light refreshments will be served.
Wandering Reel is a traveling short film festival with a focus on bringing meaningful films to communities with a limited or no access to compassionate, thought-provoking cinema. They strive to engage their audiences in deeper conversation about the role of cinema, and how films can relate to community, conscious living, and contribute to making the world a stronger and more unified place. Michael will introduce these films and guide discussion afterwards.
Michael Harrington is the curator and festival director. A bit of a wandering reel himself, Mike’s vagabond lifestyle no doubt served as some of the inspiration for the festival.
Michael will be presenting four different collections of short films:
Bijou Theatre, October 22, 11:00 am, Lincoln City Cultural Center, October 22, 7:00 pm, Newport Performing Arts Center, two presentations, October 23, 7:00 pm, and October 24, 7:00 pm.
In the fall of 2015 and winter of 2016, the Wandering Reel embarked on its inaugural tour along the Pacific Coast of the United States and Canada and east to New England. They showcased 33 films from 15 different countries across 30 different screenings.
