American Essentials Film Festival
9 May 2017 - 28 May 2017
American Essentials Film Festival is an annual event designed to showcase the past, present and future of independent cinema from the U.S.
From Penelope Spheeris to Kelly Reichardt; from Woody Allen to Alex Ross Perry; from Martin Scorsese to Paul Thomas Anderson; from Sofia Coppola to Lynn Shelton, and from John Cassavetes to Richard Linklater, the American independent film community continues to flourish and produce people, ideas, and cinema with a profound impact on the craft internationally.
American Essentials will showcase new narrative feature, feature documentary, and short works; retrospectives on crafts-people from behind and in front of the camera; guests from key US-based international film festivals; independent filmmaker guests; talks and master classes; and special event screenings.
The festival will provide audiences with not just a snapshot of current creative directions in the U.S. but will explore their great traditions and impact on international cinema movements.
