A line up that includes top works shown at international film festivals over the past year will be part of a three-day local film festival organizers hope will be “world class.”
The Academy Award-nominated film “War Witch”; Sundance-standouts “It Felt Like Love” and “Toy’s House” and John Renoir’s ”The Rules of the Game,” will all be part of the inaugural Monadnock International Film Festival, festival organizers announced Friday during a launch party at the Courtyard Marriot on Railroad Street.
Organizers also announced guest appearances by three well known television celebrities, including Matthew Gray Gubler, who stars on the popular weekly drama “Criminal Minds.”
The festival, which will be held April 4-6 at the Colonial Theatre in Keene, and at Keene State College’s Putnam Theater and Redfern Arts Center, will also include two panel discussions and three after-parties.
Panel guests so far are filmmakers Alex Mallis, Dayton Duncan and Victoria Mudd; actors Allison Miller (“Go On”), William Sanderson (“True Blood”) and Gubler, the FBI behavioral analyst Dr. Spencer Reid on “Criminal Minds,” Wiederspahn said.
