Festival Name: Oxford Film Festival
Location: Oxford, MA, United States
Overview: Founded in 2003 as a project of the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council, the Oxford Film Festival is an independent non-profit organization committed to celebrating the art of independent cinema. This is accomplished in its annual four-day event (currently in February), which brings films and filmmakers from as far away as Los Angeles and New York to North Mississippi to screen alongside the work of local filmmakers. The festival screens between 75 and 100 films of varying lengths and categories (animation, documentary feature and short, experimental, narrative feature and short), hosts panel discussions on issues in contemporary filmmaking, and invites the filmmakers to interact with the audience at a number of social events. The Oxford Film Festival entertains and educates its participants, providing residents and visitors with the opportunity to watch independent films, as well as to meet the filmmakers and learn from industry professionals. The variety of films, in addition to the panels, attracts filmgoers of all ages and backgrounds.
