The main events of the 2014 Monadnock International Film Festival will be taking place from Thursday April 10th through Saturday the 12th. Highlighting local, US, and international films, MONiff’s website states that ”The festival’s goal is to bring great movies and their film makers and actors, to the Monadnock Region.”
This year’s films will be announced on March 7th. In addition to screening movies, the festival will have panel discussions with film makers, actors, and directors and special events each day at which members of the public can mingle with film personnel.
Films are screened at the Colonial Theater on Main Street in Keene and at other locations around the town. This is a great opportunity to see presented on a theater screen films that might not otherwise be available in the New Hampshire area. For ticket information, click here.
Ken Burns, one of the most celebrated documentary film makers, will highlight a fundraiser for the Festival a few days before MONiff. An Evening with Ken Burns will take place from 5 to 7PM on Sunday March 30th at the Restaurant at Burdick Chocolates, 4 Main Street, Walpole, NH. Tickets are $ 75 per person, $ 125 per couple.
