A film festival is being held in New Milford starting on Sunday and running through Saturday October 1st. Films and forums will be held throughout the week. On Sunday night there was going to be a Q&A at Bank Street Theater with Mia Farrow following a screening of Rosemary's Baby, but Mayor David Gronbach says no one expects the Q&A to go forward following the death of the actress's 27-year old son Thaddeus. There's been no official word though on if the Q&A will be cancelled.
Over 100,000 film lovers in over 250 cities will be viewing and voting on the Finalist’s Films in the 19th Annual Manhattan Short Film Festival. Two shows are available this year in New Milford, and all of the finalists will be shown at each screening.
Mr. Deeds and the Six Wives of Henry Lefay were filmed in New Milford in the recent past and will be shown during the festival. The screenings of each of these films are free. There are a few ticketed events during the week-long festival ranging from $5 to $20, but many of the showings have been underwritten by local businesses.
