Interrobang Film Festival
On June 26, the Interrobang Film Festival opens in the downtown library with over fifty films from around the world. Entering its eighth year, this year’s festival will have greater audience involvement than ever before.
Festival producer Kristian Day says, “This year, we are focusing on creating a more interactive festival. Audiences will have the opportunity to meet the creative forces behind the films at the Midwest Filmmaker Discussion Panel, and can take part in the vote for the Audience Choice selection. In addition, we have included vendor tables and concessions outside the screening rooms for our audience’s convenience and comfort.”
This year, notable selections include Frank Green’s critically acclaimed feature, “Wildlike”, and Meryl Goldsmith’s controversial documentary, “The Syndrome,” which screens Friday afternoon, with the filmmaker in attendance.
Highlights of the weekend include the Mobile Innovation Screening, featuring short films created using mobile phones, followed by an iPhone Filmmaking Workshop. In addition, author Marty Knepper, will host a lecture and book signing of her new work, “The Book of Iowa Films”.
