The Black Maria Film Festival returns to Upstate Films Friday July 27th! The program features a collection of award-winning works — including animation, narrative, and documentary films chosen by the festival jury. Immediately following the screening, Festival Director Jane Steuerwald will conduct a Q & A with the audience.
Ingmar Bergman (1918–2007), the father of the art house movement, stands as one of the giants of world cinema. Suffice it to say that the sixty plus films in his lauded career guarantee him a comfortable box seat in the pantheon of great filmmakers. For our tribute, we’ve chosen a mix of titles that give a sense of his powers to provoke, entertain, enthrall, and flat-out wow. Come see new digital restorations courtesy of Janus Films and the Swedish Film Institute. Each title will play in Rhinebeck on a Sunday at 1pm with an encore on Wednesday, and then will repeat in Woodstock a weekend later for a Saturday or Sunday matinee.
