The program for this year’s Charleston Film Festival, which takes place March 7-10 at the Terrace Theater, was released last week, and there’s plenty on the schedule to attract any kind of movie fan. Here are some of our favorites:
British director Michael Apted has been following a group of British citizens from all walks of life since they were 7 years old, checking back in with them every seven years. 56 Up is the latest installment.
Rust and Bone is a French-Belgian film that got a lot of buzz in 2012. It tells the story of a killer whale trailer (Oscar winner Marion Cotillard), the young man who falls in love with her, and the tragedy they face along the way.
And the festival will feature a special screening of the locally produced Savannah, starring Jim Caviezel, Sam Shepard, and even 30 Rock’s Jack McBrayer. It gives a little insight into the history of Charleston’s sister city.
The fest also features a number of short film blocks, including selections from the annual Indie Grits festival in Columbia. Individual film passes are $10, or you can get a festival pass for $77.
