Kent, CT – The Kent Film Festival returns April 22nd to the 25th. This year’s festival will feature a number of insightful and thought-provoking documentaries, compelling features and diverse shorts that reflect independent cinema.
The festival is a grass roots non-profit organization dedicated to the development and education of artists with an independent vision and to create a platform for filmmakers to reach the best possible audience for their work.
Leading the festival is a private benefit screening of “Company Retreat,” written and directed by acclaimed actor/director Campbell Scott, who has a home in Litchfield County.
The movie, a mockumentary that follows the development of a fictional game show called “Company Retreat”, which places white-collar workers on teams opposite their company’s blue-collar workers. The zany characters clash as the stakes rise in the isolation of New York’s Adirondack Mountain Range. Relationships and stereotypes are tested in the most difficult, but potentially, most rewarding, corporate outing of their lives.
The screening will take place on Wednesday, April 21, at the Kent Community House, on the evening before the start of the fifth annual Kent Film Festival, a celebration of aspiring independent filmmakers.
