Arlington International Film Festival
Presented by Arlington International Film Festival at Regent Theatre
October 6 - October 9, 2011
AIFF (Arlington International Film Festival) is registered in Arlington, Massachusetts as an organization dedicated to developing, promoting, and increasing multicultural awareness and understanding in our town. The Festival also stresses the importance of the artistic and educational value of film in this endeavor. AIFF will invite progressive independent film producers and directors, from a variety of ethnicities within the US as well as beyond our borders, to participate in our annual October screenings. Local artists are especially encouraged to participate.
Some documentary highlights of the collection includee: "We Still Live Here" about what remains of the Wampanoag (the tribe who met the Pilgrims); "L'Afaire Coca-Cola" about the upsetting behavior of the Coca-Cola Corporation in Colombia; and "Blazing the Trail" about the Kalem Film Company's pioneering on-location silent film work in Ireland during the early 20th century.
