Now is the time to get the Williamstown Film Festival on your radar. This is a perfect late fall event, hitting at the end of October/beginning of November, and it’s a wonderful way to enjoy the great indoors, in a variety of notable Berkshires venues. This is also an excellent year to take in the festival, because 2013 is their 15th Anniversary Season.
Williamstown Film Festival was founded in 1998 to fill a cultural gap in a culturally rich region. Other genres of art and culture were celebrated, and enjoyed in the Berkshires – the founders of the festival felt that the Berkshires should offer a home to film as well. The current festival cultivates independent spirit, in addition to drawing film industry notables. WFF’s artistic partners – the venues that host the festival – include the Clark Museum, Mass MoCA, Images Cinema, and Williamstown Theatre Festival.
The 2013 list of films has not yet been announced, because submissions are still being accepted. A summary of last year’s films and events, however, provide a tantalizing preview of what you can expect from the event.
Enjoy the Berkshires, and indie cinema, at a warm, friendly event, surrounded by film lovers. Keep your eye on this season’s films and events, so you can plan ahead, and make your trip to the Berkshires an experience.
