CineMarfa Film Festival
In case you're looking for a very unique film festival to attend next month, be sure to make the trek out to Marfa, Texas for the CineMarfa Film Festival!
CineMarfa Film Festival returns to Marfa for its seventh continuous year of innovative film
programming. Dedicated to bringing rare, forgotten, or difficult-to-see films - including films
that have been banned or censored - to light in far West Texas, it will be held May 4 - 7,
2017 in Marfa, Texas.
This year's line-up ruminates upon the current wild moment in politics, as well as
addressing the ways in which artists engage activism, with programs of films by Cauleen
Smith, Vic Berger and others, including historical Super-8 film work by Ana Mendieta.
The festival will also be showing Mark Flood's critical and satirical look at the contemporary
art world Art Fair Fever, and Maïdan, a documentary from Ukrainian director Sergei Loznitsa
showing the popular demonstration in Kiev's Independence Square (the Maidan
Nezalezhnosti) during the winter of 2013-14, against the presidency of Viktor Yanukovych.
The full line-up of the 2017 festival will be announced soon!
