Connecticut Film Festival Weekend in Torrington, CT

It's only Monday, but I wanted to write about the Connecticut Film Festival 2011, February 4-6 at the Warner Theatre in Torrington, CT. Both feature length and short films will be shown; documentaries, works of fiction, web series, and comedy shorts. In addition to showing films, there are workshops and round table discussions tailored to those interested or involved in the independent film industry.

Of particular interest to photographers and nature buffs is the screening at 11 am, Saturday, February 5 of two environmental films with National Geographic filmmaker and photographer Jon Bowermaster.

Also of interest, on Sunday, Feb. 6 at 6 pm there will be a program of "Connecticut Grown Films".

When film festival events were held in Danbury for the past few years, I enjoyed both the films and the feeling of communal experience.

The Warner Theatre is located at 68 Main St., Torrington, CT.
