Film Festival works are intended to show the many ways that film and video can be used as an art form to inform and express. They are not commercial films of the sort that you can find in your standard multiplex. Although some of these works can certainly be enjoyed by children, not all of the films will be understood by them. Parents should review the lineup and decide if these films are all appropriate for their younger children.
Chairpersons: Mike Evers, Laurie Stolarz
Committee: Carol McLaughlin, Phil Osborn, Jocelyne Poisson, Sandy Rhoads, Bill Smalley, Paulina Villarroel, Caryle Anne Wildfield
The 2014 Film Festival lineup will be announced here when that information becomes available.

The Marblehead Festival of Arts remembers Barbara Papish, who passed away June 27. Barbara and her husband, Mike Evers, have served on the Film Festival Committee through most of its existence.
Speaking on behalf of the Committee, Bill Smalley remarked, “Barbara and I served on the Marblehead Film Festival committee for several years. It was always a pleasure seeing the films with her, pointing out something that I had missed: some quirkiness of the film, some production highlights, and some overall comments based on her many pleasant years of watching films with Mike. We on the committee will miss her insights and her upbeat personality.”
Film Festival has been a Summer Festival event since 1996. For a listing of films screened and the filmmakers,
