The 2009 Martha’s Vineyard International Film Festival will feature a stellar selection of world cinema feature and short films that are curated from top-notch festivals such as Berlin, Toronto, Sundance, Cannes Film Festivals, with a few undiscovered gems thrown in.
The movies are just the beginning. They will be followed by post “conversations” that bring together guests from film, media, politics and art to discuss and debate with the audience the issues, cultural idiosyncrasies, politics and triumphs of the cultures revealed by the extraordinary series of films.
The entertainment will continue right outside the screening venues in downtown Vineyard Haven in the festival’s “Walking Festival District,” where Main Street will be alive with local shops and restaurants hosting special events, cocktail parties, artist showcases, live music and more.
Martha’s Vineyard is the perfect location for our multi-day festival, with its amazing beaches, sunsets, spectacular restaurants, unique shops and highly engaging community.
