Featuring films representing different corners of the world, The 2015 Global Film Festival: Film & Renewal, presented by The College of William & Mary this weekend in Colonial Williamsburg, is living up to its mission statement: “Bring together international filmmakers, performers, artists, and scholars to present their work and participate in dialogues with community audiences.”
From February 19-22, community audiences can take in films with roots in Ireland, Berlin, Australia, Turkey and the United States. Timothy Barnard is the Director of the Global Film Festival and a Film & Media Studies professor at William & Mary. He told me following an appearance on WAVY-TV’s The Hampton Roads Show last week that he is particularly excited the festival is featuring a preview of a film screened recently at the Sundance Film Festival.
The Festival is proud to present a sneak preview of The Hunting Ground. Described as “a piercing, monumental exposé of the sexual assault crisis on American college campuses,” the documentary follows two survivors who fight to share what they’ve learned. The Hunting Ground screens at 6:00pm in the Kimball Theater.
For the complete schedule, you can find it on The 2015 Global Film Festival website.
