International Day Set for Saturday, Nov. 10
Now in its third year, the BronzeLens Film Festival (BronzeLens) continues to be one the nation’s most anticipated film festival events. The festival takes place November 8-11, 2012 and will offer content for filmmakers, industry professionals, students and the general public. Attendees may choose from a variety of BronzeLens expert signature panels, workshops, master classes, domestic and international film screenings and get a taste of unique southern hospitality.
On Saturday, November 10, the Bronze Lens Festival will hold its ‘International Day’ at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. The cost for the event (5 or 6 films) is $10. Attendees can stay for the entire day or just come for specific film screenings. The films are all by independent filmmakers. This year’s selections will be from Namibia (“My Beautiful Nightmare), Trinidad (“Merikins), Honduras (“On Our Land: Being Garifuna in Honduras), Dominican Republic (“Hibana”) Guadaloupe (“Elza”) and possibly South Africa (“Inside Story.”) Some are dramas and some are documentaries.
The event begins at 10:00 AM and the last film will be shown at 4:30. A number of the filmmakers will be present and the audience will have opportunity for brief Q&A and to evaluate the films.
