    Eight day festival featuring some of the best international narrative and documentary feature films, shorts, and animation, many of them world or New England premieres, as well as workshops, panel discussions and nightly parties held at the water’s edge. The festival is privileged to have two-time Academy Award winning documentary filmmaker Barbara Kopple as Filmmaker-in-Residence. She will speak after her film SHUT UP AND SING on opening night (7/31, 9 PM), which profiled the Dixie Chicks in the wake of singer Natalie Maines's anti-George W. Bush statement at a 2003 concert. She will also be available for Q&A following the screenings of her two Oscar-winning films: HARLAN COUNTY USA (Sunday, 8/1, 7 PM), an account of a bitterly violent miners strike, and AMERICAN DREAM (Monday, 8/2, 9 PM), about the Hormel meat packers strike in Minnesota. Other highlights include an appearance by Tony Shalhoub ("Monk") after the screening of his nephew's film "Feed the Fish," a panel discussion with distinguished authors whose works have been made into films, co-hosted in conjunction with PEN New England (Thursday, 8/5, 4:00 PM) featuring the world premiere of CELEBRITIES IN DISGRACE, based on a short story by Elizabeth Searle. Kids Day (Sunday, 8/1, 2-4 PM) in Redfield Auditorium features an afternoon of award-winning animated films from around the world, musical entertainment by host (and the “Singing State Trooper”) Dan Clark, and complimentary ice cream by Ben and Jerry’s. The 8th annual Project Green Screen on Wednesday, 8/4, features an outdoor screening powered completely by renewable energy (weather permitting). Casting agent Carolyn Pickman of CP Casting (THE DEPARTED, MYSTIC RIVER) offers master classes on acting for films on Thursday, 8/5, one for teens at 11:00 AM and another for adults at 3:00 PM.
