Final day Featured Films
For the final day of this years Film Festival we have a couple of great feature films screening.
First at 1pm we started off with “Silhouette City” s documentary by Michael Wilson.
Then at 3pm its another fine documentary and US Premiere feature called “It’s In The Game” by Dylan Griffin.
This first-time feature filmmaker takes an up-close and personal look at the multi-billion-dollar videogame industry, beginning with its history. This film exposes the questionable marketing tactics, quality of life issues and class action lawsuits filed against the world’s leading video game publisher, Electronic Arts.
At 4:45pm we screen the Midwest Premiere of Deliver by Jennifer Montgomery.
In this all-female video remake of Deliverance, based both on Boorman’s film and Dickey’s novel, a cast of experimental filmmakers-academics (Peggy Ahwesh, Su Friedrich, Jacqueline Goss, Meredith Root and the director) play characters that are both faithful to their respective male counterparts and also barely fictionalized versions of themselvesâ€”urban artists looking to unplug in the unspoiled wilderness. The filmmakers follow John Boorman’s original closely as the gender inversion examines the differing role of women in relation to nature and violence, comments upon the extreme sport of filmmaking itself and the industry’s endless demand for product, and to call attention to the fact that it is, after all, only women who can, biologically, truly deliver, all on a stretch of river coincidentally called Beaverkill.
