William and Mary Global Film Festival 2012

The William and Mary Global Film Festival (WMGFF) celebrates its fifth anniversary Feb. 16-19, 2012 with the theme, “Film and the City,” which recognizes cinema as both local and global. The festival features films made in and about some of the most iconic cities in the world, while also showcasing smaller, lesser known cities including Williamsburg.

The festival opens at 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 16 with “City Symphonies: Origins and New Beginnings” featuring four documentaries including “A New Olde Town, A World Turned Upside Down: A Williamsburg City Symphony.” At 10:30 p.m., guests enjoy “New York City on Film.”

The Global Film Festival continues at 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 17 with “24speed in the City.” For the eighth Annual W&M 24Speed Filmmaking Contest participating teams will be required to plan, film and edit a short film in a 24-hour period and in accordance with a city-themed directive drawn from a hat. These speedy city films will be screened and judged with a variety of awards being presented. A VIP cocktail party begins at 4 p.m. The day closes at 11 p.m. with a late night special of “City Cult Films from Around the World.”

On Saturday, Feb. 18, the focus shifts to “City Film for the Whole Family” at 11 a.m. At 1 p.m. a student short film competition will be held. During a Filmmakers Roundtable, the theme is a Chinese film special event in conjunction with the launching of the college’s Confucius Institute.

While admission without a VIP pass is $3 for general admission and $2 for William and Mary students to the WMGFF, some events are free.
