Hartford Flick Fest at new Spotlight Theatres – Dec. 6 – 9
Four-day international film festival will screen more than 25 independent films, host industry panels, awards gala and more at brand-new venue on Front Street
HARTFORD — The Hartford Flick Fest is returning to Connecticut’s capital city in its fourth year, and will be hosted by the new Spotlight Theatres – Front Street. The four-day international film festival will be held Thursday, Dec. 6, through Sunday, Dec. 9.
The festival’s opening night gala, awards reception, industry panels and film screenings will be held at Hartford’s new premiere movie destination, Spotlight Theatres (39 Front St.).
Formerly known as the Silk City Flick Fest, the Hartford Flick Fest’s new name honors the city that has embraced it over the past few years. First held in Manchester, Conn., in 2009, the festival moved to Hartford in 2010 to support its growth, and to take advantage of the city’s burgeoning arts scene and nightlife – hosting many film screenings, panel discussions, workshops, filmmaker question-and-answer sessions, and parties over the course of a busy and entertaining weekend.
Movies have been submitted to HFF this year by filmmakers from New York to California, and from all around the world – including entries from the United Kingdom and the Czech Republic. More than 25 films will be screened during the festival.
Tickets will be available at the door for all film screenings, parties and panels. More information to come as the schedule is finalized. Check out the festival’s website, hartfordflickfest.com
