More than 70 films are set to be featured later this month in Bloomington as part of the 2016 Middle Coast Film Festival. The third annual event has released its lineup of films, including a headliner described by Rolling Stone as "cinema poetry in motion."
The event, which takes place July 28-30, features short and feature films from all genres that will screen at five locations in downtown Bloomington. The festival says dozens of filmmakers will be in attendance for Q&A sessions.
"This year’s lineup includes boundary pushing, thought provoking, and truly independent cinema," said Festival Director Jessica Levandoski. "Prepare to feel the full range of human emotions over the weekend."
In addition to Rolling Stone, headliner "The Fits" has also received rave reviews from The New York Times, Variety and NPR, among other media outlets. One of the other headliners, "Krisha," won the Audience and Grand Jury Awards at SXSW.
The festival will also include several panels for attendees addressing topics, such as the progress of filmmaking and re-writing women’s role in film. Audience members will also have networking opportunities with filmmakers.
