The Camden International Film Festival (CIFF) has announced the slate of feature and short films for its 11th edition, which will take place September 17-20, 2015 throughout Camden, Rockport and Rockland, Maine. CIFF will present over 60 features and short films from across the globe, the country and the state, with filmmakers attending nearly every screening. This year’s program includes  more international titles than ever.

The Camden International Film Festival presents a snapshot of the cultural landscape through the year’s best nonfiction storytelling. The festival is recognized as one of the top documentary film festivals in the world and one of the 12 best small-town film festivals in the US. Highlights of this year’s program include Locarno titles Machine Gun or Typewriter, The Ground We Won and Locarno winner Olmo and the Seagull, fresh from TIFF: climate change doc This Changes Everything; and Points North alums Containment and Drawing the Tiger. In addition to the titles below, CIFF will screen a sidebar program of historic ethnographic films with support from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, a program celebrating the home movie archives of Charles Norman Shay in collaboration with Northeast Historic Film, and the Cinema Eye Honors for Nonfiction Filmmaking Shorts List, whose titles will be announced at the festival next month.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled with this year’s festival program,” says Ben Fowlie, Founder and Executive Director of the Camden International Film Festival. “This complex, diverse and engaging lineup is yet another reminder that the documentary form is both thriving and continuously evolving. We’re honored to share the vision and voices of this remarkable group of American and international filmmakers.”

The Camden International Film Festival will announce their Points North Documentary Forum lineup of films, speakers and panels on Thursday, August 27. Passes are on sale at camdenfilmfest.org/attend. Purchase yours before they are sold out!
