It might be a small coastal town, but Camden, Maine, shows up big as some of the best in Indie film making can be seen at the 5th Annual Camden International Film Festival (CIFF), that runs this weekend, Oct. 1-4. Four days feature over 50 documentary features, shorts and a Made in Maine showcase are presented at the Camden Opera House, Bayview Street Cinema, Farnsworth Art Museum and Strand Theatre with Q&As from filmmakers. The CIFF is a well-rounded affair of the arts as live music, art exhibits, panels and other special events, are planned around filmmaking. This festival is another example of big, not necessarily being better. Passes to the 2009 Camden International Film Festival are on sale now through the organization’s website.
