A New Film Festival Premieres in Narrowsburg, Hosted by DVAA
Big Eddy Film Festival – September 14th-16th
Looking to advance the traditional art of storytelling by showing the newest and best independent films from New York and around the world, the Big Eddy Film Festival will premiere this fall in Narrowsburg, NY on Friday, September 14th and go through Sunday, September 16th. The event, produced by Delaware Valley Arts Alliance (DVAA) and in collaboration with the newly formed Catskill Film Commission, will be held at the historic Tusten Theatre located at 210 Bridge Street in Narrowsburg.
“We are really excited to be bringing back a credible film festival to the area,” said Elaine Giguere, Executive Director of the DVAA. “We truly believe that this event will not only provide an economic boost to the local economy, but also provide a unique three-day cultural experience for residents and tourists of the Upper Delaware River region.”
The Big Eddy Film Festival will kick off Friday night with an Opening Night Gala and feature film at the historic Tusten Theatre. The rest of the weekend will showcase feature films, documentaries and shorts, along with Q&A’s with filmmakers, a youth video program and several special events throughout the remainder of the weekend.
The festival will showcase dozens of new independent films including Terence Nance’s explosively creative debut feature “An Oversimplification of Her Beauty,” which premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival; Rachel Loube’s captivating and funny documentary “Every Tuesday: A Portrait of The New Yorker Cartoonists”; and a family-friendly program of videos produced by local children and young adults. The full schedule of films will be announced on August 15, 2012.
Sponsors and volunteers are currently being solicited. For more information about the Big Eddy Film Festival, or to get involved, please visit the website at www.BigEddyFilm.com or call Delaware Valley Arts Alliance at 845.252.7576.
